Lady Chow Chow suggests a wider bowl for serving. The layers get lost in a tall bowl. You can’t get to the bottom!
Prep Time:10 minInactive Prep Time: — Cook Time:10 min
1 14-ounce package pita bread
Olive oil cooking spray
4 teaspoons Greek seasoning
1 pound ground lamb
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 16-ounce container prepared hummus
1 1/2 cups tzatziki (gyro sauce)
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
2 medium roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 diced red onion
1/2 cup kalamata olives, chopped
1 4-ounce container crumbled feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 1 or 2 baking sheets with foil. Cut the pita rounds into eighths. Split each piece in two and place on the prepared baking sheet(s), with the inside of the bread facing up. Spray with the olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of the Greek seasoning. Bake 7 to 10 minutes, or until golden.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown the ground lamb with the garlic salt and the remaining 2 teaspoons Greek seasoning. Drain and set aside. In a shallow 1 1/2-quart dish, spread the hummus on the bottom. Top with a layer of ground lamb, then the tzatziki. Layer with the lettuce, tomatoes, onion, olives and feta. Serve the dip at room temperature with pita chips.
