Roast Lamb Pitas with Spicy Sesame Yogurt Sauce

Yield 2 servings (serving size: 2 stuffed pita halves and 1/4 cup sauce)
Here's a nice change from typical Greek gyro sandwiches. It's best to pack the yogurt sauce in a separate container so the sandwich won't become soggy before lunchtime; either drizzle the sauce into the pita halves just before eating, or serve it on the side for dunking.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame-seed paste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile garlic sauce (such as Lee Kum Kee)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (6-inch) pitas, cut in half
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Simple Roasted Leg of Lamb (about 5 ounces)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and thinly sliced
