Tonight, treat yourself to a crunchy and gooey Reuben sandwich. A traditional Reuben consists of corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and Swiss cheese served panini-style on rye bread. However, this modern variation serves the sandwich on focaccia. Instead of sauerkraut, it throws quick-pickled green cabbage between the bread. The resulting sandwich is seriously delicious, I've enjoyed it three times in the past week! Check out the recipe now.
One 1/2-pound green cabbage, thinly sliced (4 cups) Serves 4.
