Ingredients

    • 1 pound 90%-lean ground beef or lamb
    • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped, divided
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1½ teaspoons dried marjoram
    • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
    • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
    • ½ cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
    • 4 cups whole-grain pita chips
    • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
    • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
    • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
    • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
    • ¼ cup slivered red onion

Directions

  • 1 Cook beef (or lamb) in a large skillet over medium heat, crumbling with a wooden spoon, for 5 minutes. Add half the garlic; cook, stirring often, until the meat is no longer pink, 2 to 4 minutes more. Add cumin, marjoram, allspice and ¼ teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  • 2 Mash the remaining garlic and ¼ teaspoon salt with a fork to form a paste. Mix it with yogurt, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl.
  • 3 Divide pita chips among 4 dinner plates. Top with equal portions of the meat, lettuce, tomatoes, feta, mint and onion. Drizzle with the yogurt sauce.
