“This is a classic Italian sub sandwich with three kinds of meat and provolone cheese. The kind you get in a mom and pop pizza joint. You'll be glad you tried it!”

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce, tomatoes and onion. In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, white wine vinegar, parsley, garlic, basil, red pepper flakes and oregano. Pour over the salad, and toss to coat evenly. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  2. Spread the submarine rolls open, and layer the Capacola, salami, prosciutto, and provolone cheese evenly on each roll. Top with some of the salad, and as many pickle slices as desired. Close the rolls and serve.

Here's what you need to do to make these more authentic.... In step one, omit the lettuce, as it will only get soggy anyway. Instead of adding your dill pickle slices at the end of the recipe, chop them up along with the onion and tomatoes and add them here. After you let it sit and marinate in the fridge for an hour or so, you get this super delicious relish type of spread for your subs. Its the perfect match for the real Italian cold cuts! Don't skimp on the quality of the meat here either. Its well worth the extra money to buy the good stuff. I brought these to a party and they were quickly devoured. I'm originally from Boston where you can always get a great Italian sub at any one of the many "Mom & Pop" delis. However, I now live in the mid-west and you cannot find a decent Italian sub here! Some places actually use ham and bologna, and call it Italian!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANKS AGAIN for this recipe! For me its like a little taste of "home"!!!



This is almost exactly how my mom used to make these when I was growing up! The only difference was that she would marinate the lettuce, tomato, onion mixture overnight, and she would put the subs under the broiler to melt the cheese before she put the salad mixture onto the subs. Try it - you'll LOVE them hot!



I thought this was good. My wife said it was great. I rate it great. Any questions ???
