Grilled Lamb Salad Bowls

Admittedly, I'm not much for salad. Generally they are too light, and often times it's hard on my stomach. But throw some hearty meat in there like grilled lamb sliced paper-thin and I'll take it all with some crunch—gotta have the crunch, because crisp lettuce is just not enough texture. I know it's untraditional to throw tortillas strips in a Mediterranean-like bowl but I'm taking some liberties and mixing things up. That's how I like it in my home. Lamb doesn't always have to be straight up Greek or Mediterranean style. In fact, I'm always on the hunt for new ways to serve it, especially since it's a lean meat with only 175 calories per a  3-ounce serving (the FDA definition for lean) and it's packed with protein. And yes, while I'm not on a "healthy" diet, I do like to eat well between the not-so healthy indulgences, so lamb's nutrient rich meat gives that added source of vitamin B12, niacin, zinc and selenium, balances it all out. And for this grilled lamb recipe,  you can serve
