In this healthier take on the Reuben--a Jewish deli staple--we save 400 mg of sodium by swapping in low-sodium turkey for beef and using low-sodium cheese. A quick slaw made with a lighter, homemade Russian dressing adds plenty of tang and crunch.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, ketchup and relish in a medium bowl. Add coleslaw mix and toss to coat.

  • Place bread on a rimmed baking sheet and brush each piece with 1 teaspoon oil. Broil until toasted, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip the bread over and top each piece with 2 slices of turkey, 1/2 cup of the coleslaw and 1 1/2 slices Swiss cheese. Toast the sandwiches under the broiler until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.


Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
