Food Challenge Week 4: Russian Dressing & and Reuben Inspired Sandwich

So, I’ve made a one-pan meal, a potato salad and a dessert. I figured this week I’d make a dressing!

As previously mentioned, I love New York and a lot of the original flavours the food that comes from there brings. I’ve had a Reuben sandwich before, but never made the dressing that comes in it, so I thought I’d try my hand at that, and then make a sandwich (a Reuben with a twist) to eat it on!

Russian dressing is super simple, and includes ingredients I already had in the house, so no doubt you’ll probably be the same. All it contains is mayo (80g) and then 1 tsp each of Worcester sauce, tommy k and mustard. Then mix it all together and hey presto!

The sandwich we created was made on rye bread, to keep it real, and we spread some dijon mustard on one side. We then added sliced turkey, Leerdammer cheese, pickled red slaw, and a good helping of Russian dressing on the other side.

We had this with a heap of kettle chips on the side. I was very impressed with this sauce, and the sandwich altogether. I really love the red slaw we put on top. I know sauerkraut is traditional for a Reuben sandwich but as I said, this was our twist on it!

This is a dressing I’ll be trying again, and have eaten it since with breaded chicken steaks and it was really good!

I’ll give this recipe a 9/10 for it’s flavour and simplicity!
