Roast beef sandwich with tomato and corn relish


This tangy, uncooked relish and roast beef make a tasty, colorful sandwich. Most relishes need slow cooking and lots of sugar. This is a fresh relish and the corn is so sweet that no sugar is needed. It takes very little time to make.


Makes 2 servings.

1 cup frozen corn kernels

1 cup diced tomatoes

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

3 tablespoons fresh cilantro

Salt and fresh ground black pepper

4 slices whole grain bread

6 ounces sliced lean roast beef

Set relish aside to marinate a few minutes. Toast whole grain bread and place roast beef on 2 slices. Spoon relish over roast beef and cover with 2 remaining slices of bread.
