From the Test Kitchen

This recipe is inspired by the bold eats of Philadelphia, where hearty sandwiches are often topped with sharp melted cheese and wilted greens. Here, we’re topping our thick-sliced roasted turkey with Provolone and broccoli rabe, which adds a pleasantly bitter bite to the sandwiches. Crusty, sturdy ciabatta rolls (seasoned with garlic for extra flavor) are perfect for holding it all in. On the side, a simple slaw of red cabbage and capers rounds out the meal with a gorgeous splash of color.
