Icelandic roast beef sandwich – Roast beef samloka
For 1 sandwich, take 2 slices of bread (white or whole-wheat), put one slice aside and top the other with 2-3 slices of cold roast beef. Smear some remoulade (scroll down to the bottom of the page to see recipe) on top of the roast beef, add 4-5 slices of pickled cucumber/gherkin OR a couple of slices of canned apricots, and about 2 tsp of French fried onions. Top with the other slice of bread and enjoy.
I like this sandwich best when it’s newly made and the onions are still crunchy, but it is quite good even when they have gone soft.
The version with the pickled cucumber is widely available wherever sandwiches are sold in supermarkets and highway diners in Iceland.
