A traditional deli-style Reuben sandwich is high in fat and sodium because of the generous layers of corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut. We've reduced the fat by using turkey, reduced-fat cheese, and reduced-fat dressing. Although it's still fairly high in sodium, our version has about half the sodium of a traditional sandwich.
