Made for Gimme 5. Mmmm I am a big sammie lover and this was so deelish! I omited the olive lunch meat as I knew the Fam would'nt like it but went as is on the rest of the ingredients.Great combo of deli meats,veggies and cheese!
This made a tasty lunch. I reduced the recipe to serve just two. I have never had olive loaf luncheon meat and it is ok, but I might just omit it the next time. Thanks for sharing.
I gave this recipe five stars for reasons other than just the taste: (1) It is economical to make a bunch of sandwiches all at once; (2) It reminded me that it is "O.K." to make something different than a ham & cheese or turkey & cheese sandwich; (3) It was fun getting positive reactions from my husband and kids! They really liked the sandwiches. Personally, I didn't care for couple of the meats in the sandwich, but that doesn't mean that I can't change the meat next time. I can make the sandwiches based upon everyone's personal preferences. When I make them again, which I plan to do, I will mix the mayonnaise and Italian dressing together before putting onto the sandwich, just to save a step... I will put more cheese on (1 ounce per sandwich)... and I will slice the pickles and tomatoes rather than dicing them and will put them into a separate Ziploc bag for each sandwich and place them on top of the sandwich before wrapping them up with plastic wrap. The sandwiches got a bit soggy by the next morning with the tomatoes and pickles on them... I will also add more shredded lettuce because it seemed to flatten out overnight. One of the things that was really nice about making the sandwiches the night before was that we were able to grab the sandwiches and put them into the cooler and we didn't have to take along all of the ingredients to make our sandwiches during our picnic. We had more time to enjoy the outdoors. One thing to keep in mind is that sub sandwiches can be made out of anything you like. The idea here in this recipe is to make it before hand to make it easier to take along with you. A thumb's up for this concept.
We enjoyed these (I made a half recipe). I will make again but with modifications. I couldn't get olive loaf at the deli counter at my market, so I substituted mortadella. The amount of cheese in these sandwiches is so small, that I couldn't really taste it. I usually like 1 ounce of cheese per sandwich, so will increase it next time. I also couldn't get by on the amount of mayo and italian dressing given. I had to increase it by half, and I do spread thin. I think next time I will double those. I omitted the pickles (preference). I will increase the vegetables a lot next time, and probably just use sliced tomatoes and leafed lettuce, rather than dicing/shredding those up. Thank you for sharing this recipe. We did enjoy it.
We really enjoyed this for lunch today. I scaled it down for the two of us, using all the listed ingredients. Very tasty. I think, for personal preference, I'll leave out the olive loaf luncheon meat. Didn't really care for it. Other than that a real winner.
