Instructions

  3. Transfer lamb to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside for 10 minutes to rest before coarsely shredding meat with 2 forks. Keep warm.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk pomegranate molasses, oil, lemon juice and honey in a large bowl until combined. Add cabbage, onion, capsicum and mint. Season and gently toss to combine.
  5. Spread each wrap with a little yoghurt. Top with shredded lamb and salad. Fold to enclose.

Notes

TIP: Lamb can be made up to 2 days ahead, cooled then stored in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. Cover and reheat in a 160°C oven until just heated through.
