Step 1:
Lay your warm crepe flat on a clean work surface, and then place 3-4 slices of deli ham, 1/4 cup shredded white cheese and one handful of prepared coleslaw in the center.

Step 2: Lift one side of the crepe and fold it in half to create a half-moon shape.

Tip: Toss 1 tablespoon of mustard with 1 handful prepared coleslaw. Adjust the heat level of your slaw by trying different mustards, like Dijon, spicy brown or coarse-grain.
