- 1 lb lean ground beef or turkey
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1/4 cup mint, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil
- For the salad:
- 1 tomato, cut into wedges
- A few lettuce leaves
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix the ground lamb with the dried oregano, mint, garlic, salt, and pepper.
- Form meatballs
Form small meatballs from the mixture.
Add olive oil to a large pan and fry the meatballs in batches until browned.
Transfer to a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes to ensure the center of the meatballs cook through.
Serve the meatballs over a salad made of lettuce and tomato wedges.
Generously squeeze the lemon over everything and garnish the salad with chopped parsley.
