  1. Combine rice vinegar, sugar and salt in small pot. Heat over medium heat until the brine reaches a boil. Whisk to make sure sugar dissolves thoroughly. Place vegetables in medium-sized bowl and pour the pickling liquid over them. Let marinate for 30 minutes while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Once done, drain marinating liquid and set aside pickled veggies for assembling in the sandwiches.
  3. When you’re ready to serve, brown ham. Heat large nonstick
    pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add ham and fry until both sides are lightly caramelized, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer ham to plate.
  4. Halve the baguettes without cutting all the way through the bread. Spread mayonnaise on both insides. Stuff with a handful of sliced cucumbers, pickled vegetables and ham. Squeeze on Sriracha sauce and/or lime juice.
