This open-faced melt is a magical way to use up leftover ham if you’ve got some in your fridge. If not, be sure to purchase some from your deli counter to make this quick and easy meal. This sandwich brings a number of good things to your plate: chewy rye with a touch of sour that’s topped with salty ham and gooey, melty cheese. That savory layer is then finished off with a fresh, colorful slaw, which gets a subtle hit of sweetness from the rice wine vinegar. Another big plus of this recipe? It’s ready in just 10 minutes.
