How to make it

  • Place lamb in glass dish and salt and pepper, add olive oil, garlic and oregano. Marinate for 2 -4 hours or overnight .
  • Wash all veggies well
  • Chop cucumbers into thin slices same for tomatoes and onions.
  • Julienne lettuce.
  • Set all veggies aside.
  • You can either skewer lamb to make into kababs or you can place them spread out in a shallow baking pan. Grill or Broil for a couple minutes on each side. Do not over cook,you want them pink and juicy. Set aside.
  • Yogurt/Tahini Cucumber Sauce
  • using about 1 cup of the cucumber slices add them to a blender with the yogurt and the tahini, add about a 1/8 tsp of garlic and salt. Blend till smooth. If needed add more yogurt and adjust taste. Tahini is very thick, some people like their sauce creamy others like it more thick, it's to your preference. Just a couple of pulses, or you'll get a juice and you'll have to adjust consistancy.
  • Brush pita bread with olive oil and heat in a pan or grill till warm.
  • Assemble the Pita with lamb pieces, veggies, and top it all off with the yogurt/tahini sauce.
  • Add the olives on the side if desired.
