Cooking Lab - Chicken Feta Sausage Wrap with Pomegranate Tabbouleh (夏日輕爽午餐: 澳式鄉村雞卷配紅石榴碎麥沙拉)

This is GMV's Lebanese inspired shawarma recipe. Shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern 'sandwiching' meat or poultry served on pitas. 



(c) GMV - Got My Vote!

The original version used in Lebanese shawarma is slow cooked meat on rotisserie, but I've decided to use gourmet chicken sausages instead. It is topped with generous tabbouleh & pomegranate salad and lavishly spread with hommus all wrapped in between wholemeal pita bread. 

No one can really resist this gorgeous delicious meal filled with GMV's 'tweaks' :) 

The result? Absolutely fantastic and the taste is sensational. They will be a hit at our next BBQ party.
