  • 450g Greek lamb mince
  • 1 tablespoon oil

SALAD

  • 1 capsicum
  • ½ iceberg lettuce *
  • Juice of ½ lemon

TO SERVE

  • 5 Lebanese flatbreads
  • 1 cup natural yoghurt *
  • 2 tablespoons sliced mint leaves *
  • ½ red onion *
  • Sweet chilli sauce or tomato relish (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 220°C (to warm flatbreads). Preheat BBQ hot plate to medium (if using).

  • 5 In a small bowl, combine yoghurt and sliced mint leaves. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Finely slice red onion (if using). Toss all salad ingredients with lemon juice and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil just before serving.
  • To serve spread a little mint yoghurt along breads and top with salad and 2–3 lamb meatballs. Garnish with red onion (if using) and a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce or tomato relish (if using) and a little more mint yoghurt (if desired). Roll up and enjoy!
