Vietnamese sandwiches have taken American by storm. This version substitutes easy-to-find liverwurst and salami for the traditional pates.



  • Julienne the carrot and radish into matchstick-sized strips, then toss with 1 teaspoon salt. Let drain in a colander for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring the vinegar, water, and sugar to a simmer in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  • Rinse the carrot and radish then drain and pat dry. Combine with the vinegar mixture.
  • Split each roll almost through lengthwise, leaving one long side intact. Spread 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise on both sides of each roll. Divide the turkey, liverwurst, and salami between rolls.
  • Cut the cucumber into long slices. Thinly slice the jalapeno. Top the meats with cucumber slices and some jalapeno to taste. Drain the carrot-radish pickle and divide between sandwiches, then top with the cilantro sprigs.
