Smoked Turkey and Slaw on Country Toast
A simple slaw complements deli turkey in this tempting sandwich. Experiment with different breads, such as toasted sourdough, rye, or pita.
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes


2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 pound red cabbage, (about 1/3 head), shredded (about 1 quart)
2 carrots, grated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
8 thick slices country bread loaf
1 pound smoked turkey breast, sliced thin
1 pound tomatoes, sliced

In a medium stainless-steel saucepan, heat the vinegar over moderate heat. Add the red cabbage and toss until it is starting to wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the cabbage to a medium glass or stainless-steel bowl and toss with the carrots, mayonnaise, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Heat the broiler. Put the bread on a baking sheet and broil, turning once, until crisp on the outside but still slightly soft in the center, about 3 minutes in all. Sandwich the turkey, sliced tomato, and slaw between pieces of toast.

Wine Recommendation: Serve a simple, flavorful wine, such as a barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc from California or a pinot blanc from Alsace in France.
