Low-sodium roast beef keeps sodium levels in check for this hearty sandwich.
1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/2 cups thinly sliced peeled Fuji apple
5 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons 2% low-fat Greek-style plain yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
Dash of ground red pepper
1 pound thinly sliced low-sodium deli roast beef
6 (1-ounce) slices rye bread, lightly toasted
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan; cook 10 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Add apple; cook 1 minute. Add cabbage and next 3 ingredients (through caraway); cover and cook 10 minutes or until cabbage is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Uncover and add 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 6 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Remove from heat; stir in parsley.
Combine yogurt and next 10 ingredients (through red pepper) in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk.
Divide roast beef evenly among rye toasts; top each serving with 2/3 cup slaw. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon dressing over cabbage.
I wanted to try this but hate cooked cabbage, so I just mixed the raw shredded cabbage with the apple (which I also shredded, and I used Granny Smith) plus some scallions (in place of the onion), omitting the water, vinegar, caraway seeds, salt & parsley. I made the dressing as directed (other than adding some pickled jalapeno for kick) and slathered half on the toasts and tossed the remaining with the slaw. Delicious! I know I changed a lot, but the dressing is amazing as is and makes the dish, in my opinion.
This is a great receipe for left over roast beef. The Russian dressing is full of flavor and adds some spiciness. The cabbage slaw has delicious sweetness with the apples and is a great contrast to the dressing.
