Top Review by WiGal

Deliciousio! I used a different bread and instead of pickles (DH does not like pickles) I put in some fresh pineapple chunks and that was yummy and more importantly made him happy. LOL! I did not have enough cabbage so I also grated some carrot to go into the slaw mixture. Thanks for sharing another keeper. Made for ZWT4 the Flying Dutchess'.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup mayonnaise (I use Hellman’s)
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage or 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • 8 slices pumpernickel bread
  • softened butter
  • 34 lb sliced black forest ham (or other good-quality ham)
  • 4 slices thin large dill pickles


  1. Combine mayonnaise with vinegar, salt and sugar.
  2. Add cabbage and coat well.
  3. Butter bread – this is important as the butter makes a ‘lining’ to prevent the bread from getting too soggy, and it tastes good too.
  4. Layer ham and slaw on bread.
  5. Top with a dill pickle slice.
