  • lamb mince 400g
  • red onion 1 small, peeled and grated
  • dill a large handful, chopped
  • ground cumin ½ tsp
  • sea salt flakes 1 tsp
  • egg yolk 1


  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • red wine vinegar 2 tbsp
  • vine cherry tomatoes 200g, halved
  • red onion ½ small, finely sliced
  • ridge cucumber 1 or 1/2 normal cucumber, halved lengthways and cut into half moons
  • kalamata olives 16, drained
  • feta 200g, cubed


  • Step 1

    Put the lamb mince in a bowl with the grated onion, dill, cumin, salt and egg yolk. Use clean hands to mix everything together, then roll into 20 little meatballs.

  • Step 2

    Heat a large, non-stick frying pan and cook the meatballs, turning until browned all over and cooked through. There should be enough fat in the lamb to fry them without using any extra.

  • Step 3

    To make the salad, whisk the oil and vinegar together then toss with all the other ingredients. Serve the meatballs with the salad.
