Purchased coleslaw saves
the day again in Roast Beef Wraps

Purchased coleslaw mix from the grocery store can easily be dressed up and go on to much bigger and better things, I have learned recently.
   Earlier this year I made Five-Spice Steak Wraps, in which sesame oil and rice vinegar, mixed together as a dressing for purchased coleslaw, produced a terrific savoury salad.
   Last week, my husband made Roast Beef Wraps with Dill Slaw (click for the recipe on the Food Network website). In this recipe, fresh dill, white wine vinegar, sugar, mayo and sour cream create the perfect vinegary dressing for purchased coleslaw, which in turn makes the perfect crunchy complement to roast beef and Havarti cheese in a wrap.
   The wraps were a perfect I-don’t-want-to-turn-on-the-oven-or-start-up-the-grill quick supper for a hot summer night that will please the whole family. The wraps come together in mere minutes.
   We did microwave the assembled wraps for just 30 seconds, which melted the cheese just a little bit and warmed the wraps slightly. This direction isn’t in the recipe.
   My husband was unable to find dill-flavored Havarti cheese at the supermarket, so we used regular and it was terrific. We skipped the horseradish as we’re not big fans, and this is something you may want to do if you are serving the wraps to children.
   Purchased coleslaw mix, chopped fresh dill, white wine vinegar, sugar, mayonnaise, sour cream, salt and pepper are mixed together.
   Slices of Havarti cheese, roast beef and slaw are layered in the centre of the wrap, which is then rolled up tightly.
