We love a good, crunchy and refreshing fattoush salad, but what we love more are the tastiest most tender juicy lamb chops from Silver Fern Farms New Zealand! 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, they are slightly daintier than their Australian counterparts and take no time at all to cook on a hot pan or grill.

Step 1: Marinade the Lamb Chops! Place chops in a flat dish for marinating. Mix salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil, rosemary and lemon juice together in a small bowl.

Pour the marinade over the lamb chops, wrap with clingwrap and chill in fridge if not cooking immediately.

Step 2: Make the Fattoush dressing and prepare crispy bread.ย Mix Fattoush dressing ingredients in a jar and shake until combined.

A great reason to reuse glass jars from pasta sauces and condiments like mustard and pesto!

Toast pita bread in a hot oven for 2-3 minutes (careful not to burn them!) until golden brown. They will crisp while resting.

Combine salad vegetables in a large bowl. Chill until ready to serve.

Step 3: Grill the Lamb Chops! 30 mins before you're ready to cook, remove the lamb chops from the fridge and let come to room temperature. Grill on hot pan for 3-5 mins per side to your preference.

While the lamb chops are cooking, toss the dressing into the salad and break the pita rounds using your hands over the salad.

Serve with the grilled Silver Fern Farms lamb chops. Enjoy!
