Lamb is such a beautiful meat, but often when you buy a leg it really doesn’t go far.
So quite often I will slow cook it and shred it, then offer it with salad and wraps so people can make their own, perfect for sharing food withfriends without breaking the bank.
I find half a leg will feed about 8 people, depending on hunger. If you have meat left over it is great on pizza with some spinach and goats cheese OR in this lamb salad.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
