Super Hero Sandwich

1 tsp. dried oregano

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 teaspoons Newman’s oil and vinegar dressing

1-14 “ loaf Italian bread with sesame seeds

2 teaspoons Hellmann’s mayonnaise

2 teaspoons Lite house Jalapeno Ranch dressing

2 cups finely shredded iceberg lettuce

2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

1 small red onion rings, separated

5 oz. thinly sliced hard salami

5 oz. thinly sliced peppered turkey

5 oz. thinly sliced black forest ham

5 oz. thinly sliced sopressata

5 oz. thinly sliced mortadella

5 oz. thinly sliced provolone cheese


In a small bowl, whisk together Newman’s oil and vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper.  Add shredded iceberg lettuce, toss to coat. Set aside.

On a work surface, place a long piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper and position the bottom half of the cut loaf over the wrap.  In small custard cup, mix together mayonnaise and ranch dressing. Stir to combine and spread over the bread.   Layer ham, turkey, sopressata, mortadella, and salami, provolone cheese, tomato slices, onion rings and shredded lettuce.

Top with sesame seed top crust. Wrap sandwich in plastic wrap or parchment paper and refrigerate for at least one hour or up to 4 hours to develop the flavors.

To serve, unwrap sandwich and garnish with cherry tomato with pickle slice skewered with a frilly toothpick.  The picks will keep the sandwich together while cutting. Cut sandwich into desired portions.

Serve with seasoned potato chips and caramel brownies for a great man- pleasing meal.
