“My family makes these sandwiches with the leftovers of our Salvadorian Roast Turkey. The sandwiches are really messy, but really yummy, and totally worth the work.”

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in cabbage and carrots; let stand for 2 minutes then drain in a colander. Rinse well with cold water, then squeeze dry.
  2. Place shredded cabbage and carrots into a large bowl along with the onion, oregano, and mayonnaise. Mix together until you have a mixture resembling coleslaw. This is the curtido.
  3. To prepare sandwiches, lightly spread each roll with mayonnaise and pile with shredded turkey. Place a scoop of curtido on top of the turkey, and finish with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and radishes.

For the turkey I use Pavo de Salvadoreano (10 lb Turkey, 8 Roma Tomatoes, 1 Green Pepper, 1 can stewed tomatoes, ½ yellow onion, ¼ cup green pumpkin seeds, 1 dried pasilla ancho chile, 10 oz pimento filled green olives, ¼ tsp Cumin, 1 Tbsp Oregano Broil green pepper and Roma tomato. Remove skins. In blender blend Roma’s, green pepper, stewed tomatoes, onion, pumpkin seeds, pasilla ancho, cumin, oregano. Season Turkey with black pepper and cumin. Sear Turkey. Place in roasting pan and pour salsa over turkey With spoon add olives to salsa. Bake recommended time for size of your turkey) I then shred the turkey and place in a toasted roll. I mix mayo with my curtido (cabbage, carrot, onion) slice my tomato, cucumber and radish thin. I add watercrest as well. then i put a little sauce from the turkey over the filling. PERFECT! My slim hubby can down 3 of these. and all my kids love them (made to their own preference). Enjoy!

Made these sandwiches and thought they where good. They are messy so be prepared. My husband and daughter enjoyed them also. Instead of cutting up the cabbage I bought a bag of coleslaw mix which already had carrots in it so I used that. Worked out great. I still put in water like recipe says. Will make again. My daughter said I should get a job a subway told her I will pass. Thanks for the recipe.
