Tacos, Sonaran, white sauce?

I'm trying to make a different taco from what we usually have in Texas..

I have corn tortillas and thin sliced marinated beef.

I have cabbage, radishes, onions and white cheese.

Peach salsa for topping.

But I think this is a Southern California dish, that is supposed to have a Sonoren Mexico White sauce, much like Tarter Sauce, like on fish tacos..

am I all wet here?

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

What is good lettuce? Do you mean crisp lettuce, romaine, iceberg, or a personal favorite of yours?
Or simply lettuce that is not brown and slimy?

White mayo based sauces similar to those above are often served around here as a taco dip.

LOL--don't know about being 'all wet' as not a raindrop in sight, but as a SoCal resident, who loves Mexican grub and dines out a lot, I can tell you I've never seen your proposed taco sold anywhere. I realize that doesn't mean that it isn't on a menu somewhere, but if so, not a 'must have' item.
Hope you'll tell us how it came out and what you thought of it.

Iceberg is good for a display, not much else. I meant crispy, fresh not wilted any type you like

Thanks Jim. Iceberg is my favorite kind of lettuce, but I did buy some romaine today. The crispier, the better (for me).
