10 minutes
25 minutes


  • 8 lamb cutlets excess fat trimmed
  • ½ iceberg lettuce roughly chopped
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes halved
  • 250 g baby cucumbers roughly chopped
  • 1 red (Spanish) onion thinly sliced
  • 6 radishes thinly sliced
  • 6 fresh dates pitted and roughly chopped
  • 4 low GI wraps
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup cajun spice blend
  • cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • 1 lemon juiced

To serve

  • fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • pistachio nuts
  • pomegranate seeds


  • Preheat oven to 200°C (180°Cfan-forced). Line a large baking tray with baking paper and place pita pockets on the tray. Brush pita pockets with 1 tablespoon oil, sprinkle with half the za’atar and cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway, or until crisp and golden. Set aside to cool. Break into pieces.
  • Meanwhile, brush cutlets with 1 tablespoon oil and season. Sprinkle with remaining za’atar. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and cook cutlets, in batches, if necessary, for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside on a plate loosely covered with foil to rest for 5 minutes.
  • In a screw top jar place remaining oil, pomegranate molasses and lemon juice. Season and shake well to combine.
  • Place lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, radishes, dates, feta and pita onto a serving dish. Drizzle with dressing and toss well to coat.
  • Serve cutlets with salad topped with parsley, pistachios and pomegranate seeds.


Use up your leftover veggies, like cabbage, carrot and snow peas, by shredding them very finely and mixing through the salad for extra texture and flavour.
