How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt with the tahini, half of the garlic and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt.

Step 2    

In another bowl, toss the carrots with the cilantro, cumin, paprika and the remaining garlic, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt.

Step 3    

Arrange the lettuce leaves on a very large platter and spoon a small dollop of the sesame yogurt in the centers. Top with the beef and the carrot slaw and serve right away.
