Recipe Notes

If you would like a neater presentation, spread dressing on ham directly then lay on plate and layer with homemade pickles and sauerkraut

Pickles in this recipe are a great snack so make a double batch

Serve on top of one melba toast for an open faced, crunchy Reuben sandwich (use some of the pickle juice to soak the melba toast for a more acidic treat)

*This is based on the Trim Healthy Mama stevia brand that I personally use and linked to in the recipe which is quite concentrated. Stevia potency really varies from brand to brand so you may need to adjust the level of stevia to more or less depending on which one you use.
