Pickle Slaw and Roast Beef Sandwich

Lately, I have had a craving for fried pickles (not the healthiest way to eat pickles). In order to get my pickle fix while maintaining a healthier meal I created this recipe using pickle juice to flavor slaw. Both slaw and pickles seem to be trending right now and for good reason they are delicious.

  • ¼ cup canola mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups slaw mix
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • ½ cup chopped dill pickles
  • 8 ounces Roast beef
  • 4 Whole wheat tortillas

In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, pickle juice, vinegar, and pepper. Add the slaw mix and kale and toss well to combine. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

To assemble place 1/3 cup slaw mix down the middle of the tortilla.  Next layer 2 slices of roast beef. Carefully roll up the tortilla pressing one end in “burrito style” to help hold in the juices and roll up.  This may be a little juicy so eat carefully.
