Italian Sub Sandwiches

Italian Sub Sandwiches

When I think of a good, gourmet sandwich recipe, the picture above comes to mind.  I call this an Italian sub.  I know people have their own definitions of exactly what an Italian sub should made out of, but this is what I go with and it is everything I want in a sandwich and more.  I give it the Italian moniker because it has salami, capicola, and provolone making up most of the main body.  Add lettuce, tomato and onion for flavor and crunch.  The vinegar, herbs, garlic, and oil dance around the edges of all that yumminess for a can’t go wrong “sammich” that is sure to satisfy for a game day or any day. A few potato chips and some hot pepperoncini on the side– score!
