With Sicilian origins, this sandwich is piled high in a large round loaf, filled with Italian deli meats, provolone cheese and an olive spread or salad that is packed with flavour.
Traditionally, the sandwich is made with salami, capicola and mortadella. The best part of making it at home is you can use the meats that you prefer. Don’t eat pork? These meats can easily be substituted with beef or chicken salami, bologna, and corned beef.
The olive spread can be made quickly in a food processor. Head to your local Italian grocery store and grab some olives, roasted red peppers and some giardiniera (pickled vegetables). Those along with garlic, onions, vinegar, and spices pulsed together are all you need to create the sandwich.
Once you have built the sandwich, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and set in the fridge overnight. This will allow the flavours to mingle. Cut the sandwich into wedges and serve.
