Submarine Salad

A de-constructed classic Italian Submarine Sandwich.



1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup vinegar (I used tarragon vinegar)

1 1/2 tablespoons brown mustard

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon sugar


1/2 head iceburg lettuce, coarsely chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1/3 pound Genoa salami, coarsely diced

6 slices Provolone cheese, diced

1/4 cup banana pepper rings

1/2 load unsliced Italian bread, cut into 1 1/2" - 2" chunks

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 teaspoon salt


In a medium bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients.  Set aside.

Place lettuce, tomatoes, onion, salami, Provolone and pepper rings in a large salad bowl.  Pour dressing over and toss well.

In a medium skillet, toast bread cubes in oil and butter using tongs to turn frequently.  Season with salt and scatter on top of the salad.  Serves 6.
