Makes 4 Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 1 cup packed drained Italian mix giardiniera*
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives
  • ½ cup pitted green olives
  • ¼ cup drained capers
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 4 hoagie rolls, sliced in half lengthwise

  • 12 thin slices mortadella
  • 16 thin slices of salami

Instructions
  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, add giardiniera, olives, capers, and olive oil. Pulse until mixture is chopped, about 10 pulses. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months, adding oil to cover vegetables as necessary.
  2. For each sandwich, spread 3 tablespoons of olive mixture on each half of hoagie roll. On one half of hoagie roll, place 3 slices of ham, 3 slices of mortadella, 4 slices of salami, 2 half slices of provolone, and 2 half slices of mozzarella. Cover with remaining half of roll. Serve immediately with hot sauce, if desired.
