    Pastrami Melt Salad

    Shop Now
    Last week hubby and I took a bike ride to a cafe, and I ate exactly what I was craving, which was a pastrami melt sandwich on rye. (My first bread in months.) It was delicious, and I got the idea to recreate all the crucial flavors without the bread, so here's what I did:

    In a shallow baking dish, I layered pastrami, swiss cheese, thin-sliced red onion, yellow mustard, mayonaisse and a sprinkle of caraway seeds. (Rye flour really has no special flavor; it's the caraway seeds that give it the distinctive taste.) I repeated this in three layers. While this was all melting together in the oven, I shredded up a bunch of spinach. Then I slid the pastrami layers out of the dish on top of the spinach.

    This got a big thumbs up from hubby (and me). Use whatever proportions you like.

    YES that pastrami mix sounds superawesome. I luv rye bread too, just b/c of those funky seeds. What a good idea.

    HAve you ever had those seeds in an Indian restaurant? they put a little dish of them w/ sugar. Tastes good, for a treat. I've seen those candy coated ones too but they look like they would taste like tic tacs. bleh.
