How to Make It

Step 1    

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.

Step 2    

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.


Variations Embellish the slaw as you like. Chopped scallions, grated jicama, or thin slices of green pepper all make good additions.

Serve With

Sandwiches need simple, no-fuss companions, such as oven fries, chips, or fruit salad.

Suggested Pairing

Serve a simple, flavorful wine, such as a barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc from California or a a Pinot Blanc from Alsace in France.
