Daryl’s Deli Sandwich 1920 2560 Daryl Duarte

This sandwich requires a few sauces – which I recommend you have in your refrigerator at all times.   Russian Dressing and Coleslaw Dressing can be stored – and ready when you are.

Watch me make this fantastic, robust, sandwich – half is plenty for lunch – with some chips or pickles on the side – but for the big eater’s club, enjoy both halves!

Daryl’s Deli Sandwich with Turkey, Swiss, Coleslaw and Russian Dressing on pumpernickel

This delicious sandwich is a bellwether item by which to measure a deli counter and sandwich maker's skill. I like more of everything - the tangier the better. Half of this sandwich is a good lunch - so split it with a friend and then splurge on some chips!

Main ingredients

  • Russian Dressing - this is a staple and should be made ahead on in your refrigerator 24/7
  • Coleslaw - Dressing made ahead and stored in the refrigerator and slice the cabbage to order - depending upon how many sandwiches you are making. Extra can be put on the plate as a side salad.
  • Sliced turkey
  • Swiss cheese
  • Pumpernickel bread
  • Sauerkraut - optional but recommended
  • Slicing pickles - optional but recommended


Building the sandwich

  • Toast the bread
  • Put Russian dressing on both slices of the bread. Layer the turkey, cheese, coleslaw, a bit of drained sauerkraut and one long slicing pickle plus another dollop of Russian dressing, close the sandwich, slice in half and serve.
  • This is a very wet, piquant sandwich.

    Hello my friend! Sunday afternoon. Just took a long hike in the woods this morning and boy do I want to make this incredible sanny. Love the video! Can’t wait to make your coleslaw and Russian dressing for next weekend so I can do the entire construction.
