    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    Most people think that this is a Jewish sandwich, but it was actually created by Reuben Kay of Omaha, Nebraska. I know that many people use Thousand Island Dressing, but I prefer my own Russian Dressing. Try it and you will like it! Also, you can omit the cole slaw if you wish, but I like that too.

      I don't like giving this only two stars -- but it just wasn't a Reuben to me. The coleslaw just didn't belong! The second thing that wasn't "Reuben" was the dressing. I've had a LOT of Reuben's -- but always with a Thousand Island type of dressing. I'll go back to the other Reuben Sandwich recipe I had been using. Sorry.

      I'm really just rating the dressing ... I LOOOOOOOVE it. I just make the sandwich with sauerkraut, cheese, and corned beef, butter on the outside of the bread, and stick it in the health grill/sandwich press ... dressing on the side for dipping ... mmmmmmmm.

      My 5 star rating is for the sauce. I really enjoyed it and when a dill pickle is eaten alongside the sandwich, I didn't miss the Thousand Island at all. I made this in a panini maker without the coleslaw, so that is why I rated the sauce and cannot fully comment on the ingredient combination or process. Will definitely make this sauce again!
