Prosciutto Sandwich w/Basil Apple Fennel Slaw

Prosciutto Sandwich w/Basil Apple Fennel Slaw

Lately, illness I’m loving big, story delicious sandwiches full of meats, cheeses and “slaws”. I tried looking up the definition of a slaw, but all I got was “sliced cabbage”, which isn’t really what I had in mind. Here’s my definition. Slaw (n.): A crunchy mix of thinly sliced vegetables and herbs, dressed with mayonnaise or vinaigrette, and usually served as a side or topping with a sandwich. There. I feel better. Now I can use the term slaw as loosely as I have been and we can get back to talking about the sandwich.

I like to think of this sandwich as a transition meal between Summer and Fall. The fennel and basil make it taste Summer-fresh, but the green apple definitely says Fall. The rest of the sandwich is a neat little stack of prosciutto, Saint Albray Cheese — a creamy, Brie-like, spicy cheese — and the slaw. It was perfectly simple, a nice balance between meat and cheese and vegetables, and absolutely delicious!

Prosciutto Sandwich w/Basil Apple Fennel Slaw

1 small fennel bulb (or half a large one), thinly sliced
1 large green apple, thinly sliced (peel on)
1/4 cup basil leaves, thinly sliced
a small handful of fennel greens
2 tbsp. good olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
pinch salt

1 loaf crusty French Bread (I used a Multi-grain loaf)
12 slices prosciutto
4 oz. Saint Albray Cheese, freshly sliced

Begin by making the slaw. Toss the fennel, apple, fennel greens and basil with the olive oil, lemon juice and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.

Slice the baguette in half so that you have a top piece and bottom piece. I like to hollow out the soft bread-y parts of the top half to make more room for the slaw. (Save this and use as a meatloaf or meatball “moistener” instead of dried breadcrumbs.)

Layer the prosciutto, then the cheese, then heap on the slaw. Cover with the hollowed-out top half and cut into 4 sandwiches. Serve with your favorite potato chips or side salad.

Makes 4 sandwiches.

    Great sandwich, keep up the good job.

  2. What a great blend of flavor profiles. This would be perfect for a weekend after-the-yardwork reward meal. Fresh, hearty, won’t heat up the kitchen or the cook, seeing as our “Fall” temperatures haven’t fallen very far yet.

    My DH doesn’t enjoy fennel so I’ll have to come up with a substitution. Any suggestions? A thin sliced really sweet onion perhaps? Green pepper maybe?

  3. Deb – Thanks! Instead of the fennel, you can try thinly sliced Savoy or Napa cabbage or the sweet onion that you suggested. It’s still hot here too – gets up to the mid-80’s during the day, but the humidity has dropped a lot – Thank God!

  9. Carole KalusDear Sueson,I am still shaken by the fact that you are monvig! Although I am very happy for you in that you are so deserving of this dream-come-true for you and your husband, I am so disappointed that I have not had more time to grow with you. Since my first Naperville Whole Foods class with you just three weeks after my diagnosis in November 2011, you have inspired me to make the most of my situation. At 71 years, initially it was a shock that both frightened and saddened me. Since then, I have learned much from many resources but none have affected me as much as my encounters with(and inspiration from) you. I am beginning to feel much more empowered but still have so many questions. I was prepared to talk with you at the Wheaton store which you needed to cancel and then, again, this past Tuesday when I learned that you were leaving. Beyond those questions, having spent 20 years in Fundraising, Management,and Planned Giving with the Chicago Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association at a Local, Regional, Divisional,and National level, I so now feel the need to get more involved with the nuts and bolts of research funding, mentoring, and public eduction programs for Celiac Disease. I had hoped Tuesday evening to invite you to lunch to discuss volunteer opportunities with U of C and now hope that you might be able to link me to someone at the U of C Celiac Disease Center, if you think that I might be able to be of service. I know how busy you must be in preparing for your departure before the end of the month but I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. I wish you the very best in your new job (you will be GREAT!!!) and hope that you will be so very happy in your new home and surroundings!!! I also hope your new audience will appreciate you as much as so many of us in Chicagoland have and always will!!! I will always hope and look for a new Gluten-Free segment on the Food Network featuring Master Chef Sueson Vess! Best wishes and ultimate health always! Fondly and with much gratitude,Carole Kalus
