Remember that crusty, grainy muesli roll I had yesterday from the Publix bakery? I had its twin sister today, only I decided a little color was needed in her life.
This was a ham, cheese, and slaw sandwich. Perfect for the summertime heat and perfect for sneaking some colorful veggies into my diet.
Lighter Summertime Slaw (serves 2)
- 1/2 red cabbage
- 3 carrots
- 1 cup fresh green beans
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon honey
- salt + pepper to taste
Whisk all of the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside. In a medium bowl, shred the carrots and red cabbage (I used an old fashion cheese grater, but you can use a food processor attachment if you have it). Cut the green beans in bite sized pieces and add them to the carrots and red cabbage. Coat the veggies with the dressing and let it sit for 20-30 minutes to let the flavor soak in some.
Divide the slaw in two servings and serve as you wish. I enjoyed it as a flavorful topper to the crusty ham and white cheddar sandwich I had toasted under the broiler to let the cheese melt for a few minutes.
With a side of fresh apple slices.
Great lunch. I love how the addition of the slaw really kicked the traditional ham and cheese sandwich up a notch.
What’s your favorite sandwich topper? Along with slaw, I also love the addition of guacamole or potato salad to any sandwich jazz it up.
