The ever-popular, classic Reuben sandwich is traditionally high in calories, fat and sodium. CalorieKing's Recipe Makeover, the Reuben Triple S, trims down the extras substantially.
By reducing the meat and cheese portions, replacing regular Russian Dressing with a low-cal version of the same, using low-fat Swiss cheese versus regular, using low-sodium sauerkraut, and serving the sandwich open-faced, this Recipe Makeover is a healthier yet flavorful sandwich!
