How to make a Reuben Dip

Reuben Dip

 

This recipe was submitted by Jody Sears and printed in the Kneaders’ June 2013 Newsletter. Some say a Lithuanian grocer created the Reuben for his weekly poker buddies. Other stories suggest that Rueben’s Delicatessen first created the sandwich for a famous actress in 1914. The sandwich’s origins may be mysterious, but the flavor is well known. This recipe turns the New York classic into a hearty dip.
