Antipasto Submarine Salad Sandwich

Monday, February 10, 2020
Antipasto Submarine Salad Sandwich is an antipasto salad between layers for toasted Italian seasoned bread.


This is a whole meal in itself and will feed between 5 and 6 people.


It's great for hosting a party, game days and any family and friends get together.


The sandwich is surely a conversation piece as they admire your creation of deliciousness.


My kids devoured this antipasto sandwich so fast it wasn't funny, I had to make two!


We love this Italian salad, to begin with, but having it as a meal in a huge submarine sandwich really was the best idea ever!


Oh, they love Italian potato salad or my tortellini salad but when it comes to lettuce no so much.


Actually, my son Chad came up with this idea, he is the biggest lover of the Italian Classic Salad, and Antipasto Pizza Roll, I couldn't help but share this idea with my readers!


This sandwich is packed with imported Italian meats, cheeses, layers of lettuce tomatoes and doused with a good grade oil and vinegar.


Take a look at all the ideas that can go into your antipasto sandwich and adapt this to however you like yours!


Scroll down for these yummy ideas.

A Whole Meal in a Bread Salad Loaf!



Not everyone here in our home is big on salad, but this was gone so fast and the way to get them to eat those vegetables.


Most all the men in my family love the meats and cheese and of course great Italian bread but a regular salad, is a no go other than one son and I!


I am happy to serve salad this way now and it's funny how I have had to inspire them in a different way to eat their vegetables!


Everyone loved it and now I make this often for movie night and especially those big Sunday Game Days!

Tips


  • Toast the bread first
  • Always season each layer
  • Use granulated garlic powder for a garlic bread flavor
  • Always use olive oil not butter for toasting
  • Keep the leftovers in the refrigerator for no more than two days
  • Store in a plastic container or plastic wrap

Easy and Fun To Make



You can actually make this a family and friend fun food night without cooking anything!


Buy small mini-sub rolls and have each person make their own setting up a salad station.


I have done this at parties also and it works great.


Everyone builds their own submarine sandwich exactly with what they love.


Just keep all the meats, cheeses and condiments separately, and enjoy a family and friends fun night without cooking.


Add a fruit tray and or a cookie tray or try my no-bake cannoli mousse, that's always a huge hit, then you can take the night off!

Salad Ideas?



If you really aren't into meats, make this all vegetarian and every layer can be favorite vegetables.


For seafood lovers, make this all tuna or even layered with a shrimp salad.


Lastly for all the submarine sandwich lovers out there, you can surely just make this with a chicken or turkey salad if you prefer those kinds of salads.

  2. Broil each layer a few minutes until browned, watching carefully not to burn.
  3. As you have stacked each sliced layer with whatever you like, drizzle with vinegar, olive oil, sprinkle with basil, oregano, grated Pecorino Romano cheeses.
  4. First layer: add whatever you would put into your salad here IE lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, olives, provolone or any cheese you like, etc.
  5. Second layer meats of any kind, more cheeses or you can do a layer with olive oil-packed tuna on it. 
  6. Brush the top of the brush with olive oil, sprinkled with granulated garlic and more Pecorino Romano Cheese.
  7. Slice and serve.

  1. That is one great looking sandwich Claudia and I love the ingredients - might be a little hard to get my mouth around it though.

  2. Great minds definitely think alike, Claudia. I had something very similar for lunch today. I've never met an antipasto I didn't like and neither has my family, but I'd happily eat a sandwich at every meal as well and combining two of my favorite things is bliss. Now if a chocolate brownie just "fit in."

  5. Your son is absolutely right. I bet if I made this sandwich my husband would actually fold the laundry on a semi-regular basis. Looks incredibly satisfying!

  11. Yummy! I am really craving one of these now! I used to make them weekly and then cut off slices for my kid's lunch. Putting the salad between the meat and cheese kept it from getting soggy which was perfect for school lunches. I think I'll go make one of these beauties for me!
