Try leftover turkey

This works well with leftover roast turkey at Christmas, too.


  1. Whisk the lemon juice, garlic, yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard powder, anchovy, parmesan and 2-3 tbsp water together with a good grinding of black pepper. Toss in the chicken, cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce, until everything is well coated. Toast the pitta and split, then stuff with the salad and chicken mixture.
