Lamb Salads

You’re probably wondering why lamb salads, after all there are so many different ways to use up leftover lamb.

Well, whilst I love a leftover lamb curry in the slow cooker or using it for a leftover soup, lamb salads are the easiest option.

You can grab whatever salad leftovers you have in the fridge, then use the air fryer to reheat your leftover sliced lamb and you have a delicious family dinner for your Monday nights.

Plus, if it is in the summertime, you can serve the lamb cold and just enjoy a cold lamb salad, or another idea if you are not feeling the salad, is to follow this recipe for reheating the lamb and instead make warm lamb sandwiches.

Can You Reheat Lamb In The Air Fryer?

YES, YES, YES, you can reheat lamb in the air fryer, and its perfect for when you had a roast dinner the day before and want some warm lamb the next day.

We have reheated sliced lamb shoulder and boneless lamb leg and each time they have had the wow factor.

Is Lamb Good Cold?

I’m not a fan of cold lamb, I would much rather have it reheated in the air fryer. Plus, when you reheat the lamb it will get rid of some of the extra fat that will have created a layer on the lamb if it has been left cold.

Is Lamb Salad Good For You?

Lamb is not the leanest of meats to make into a salad. But balanced out with the remaining salad ingredients it becomes a healthy salad.

Plus, enjoying a lamb salad is much less on the calories compared to using the lamb to make a big curry with loads of cream.

Greek Lamb Salad

We love a Greek salad and this summer we are visiting one of the Greek isles where I am sure we will eat Greek salad until there is none left!

You can do the same or even serve your lamb salad with some pitta breads.

We have also opted to make a bowl of Greek garlic yoghurt to dunk into the lamb salad.

    On a diet at the moment and this was perfect to make with some delicious lamb. It was cooked just how i like it and the boys just ate the lamb and did not bother with the salad which is quite typical for us.
