Summertime Pork Sandwich 

Ingredients:8 slices good quality bread, sliced ½-inch thick1 to 1¼ pound shaved roast pork, store-bought or homemade2 apples, peeled and julienned2 small-to-medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and julienned2 shallots, sliced thin1 cup water1 cup rice wine vinegar1 cup sugar1 teaspoon red pepper flakes½ cup mayonnaise4 cloves roasted garlicDirections:If you are roasting your own pork, make it ahead of time. If not, slice it extremely thin or, if you have access to a meat shaver, shave it. To make slaw, combine the julienned apple and sliced shallot into a heat-proof bowl. Bring the water, vinegar, sugar and red pepper to a boil, then pour the hot liquid over the apple and shallots. Cover and refrigerate until cool: then add cucumbers. While the slaw is cooling, combine the mayo and roasted garlic in a blender or food processor and puree until fully combined. Spread mayo on both sides of bread, add 4-5 ounces of pork and top with a generous pile of slaw. Serve cold.Serves 4Recipe Submitted by: Russ Flewelling
