Creamy, minty tzatziki goes so well with lamb – pack into pittas with salad for a quick lunch or supper. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our soy honeyed leg of lamb dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.

Heat a griddle pan over a high temperature and add the pitta breads. Griddle the bread for 1 minute on each side until toasted and charred. Place the lamb on a heatproof plate and microwave for 2 minutes on high. 

Halve the pittas and fill with the lamb’s lettuce, red onion, carrot and the lamb. Spoon the tzatziki into the filled pittas and serve immediately.
