I have used this recipe many times and it is always a success.Easily available ingredients are important to me as our market does not have everything. I agree with all of the comments and advice by other readers. It is indeed a little hard to eat, but use a fork! Also, you will want to make extra because everyone likes it.
This recipe has so many things going for it! It's very quick and easy. It has a balance of flavors--sweet, salty, acidic, and the herbiness of mint. The textures are varied too--soft, chewy, crunchy, and creamy from the yogurt. I will be making this over and over!
Love it! We've had it twice since the magazine issue came out.
Very yummy. I served it like a taco salad over mixed greens and it was very tasty. Adding the cinnamon to the ground lamb really brings out the flavor. This is a recipe I will make again.
Don't skimp on serving size as everyone will want seconds & thirds! My entire family (husband + 3 boys 10-15 yrs old) devoured this. The orange salad is great...you might want to make extra. I added more cinnamon to the lamb, and more mint to the salad. Yogurt added a wonderful cooling flavor.
Good flavors, but impossible to eat!!

This was delicious! Same yummy flavors as you find in a gyro (lamb, cucumber, onion, yogurt) but without the greasy guilt! The only tedious part is removing the orange membranes for the salad. Next time, I'd try leaving them in and just cut the orange segments into chunks--less fuss and probably not that much texture difference.
Yum, yum, yum. This recipe is delicious and filling, with loads of nutrients. The cinnamon is key, drawing out the sweetness of the lamb, and don't be afraid of the salt. The meat could use a little spicy heat to allow the cooling power of the yogurt and salad to get real contrast. I fond that the recipe really serves two - three rather than four. It's just too tasty to have half a pita each.
yum... found a new recipe!!
Very Good! Great quick week night meal!
