This is an easy recipe for a classic sandwich.

Top Review by Ryleigh

This is delicious and very easy to make. There are some steps involved when preparing the olive mixture but I have found that when I make this mixture to double it and it lasts in the fridge. That way we can get 2 or 3 sandwiches out of a batch since we enjoy this sandwich quite often. It is a staple on Superbowl Sunday!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I like to use a mini food processer to chop all the tapenade ingredients.
  2. Using serrated knife cut bread in half lengthwise.
  3. Pull out soft center of each piece, leaving 1 & 1/2"-thick shell.
  4. In large bowl combine olives, roasted peppers, parsley, oil, vinegar, hot peppers, garlic, oregano and pepper.
  5. Dip a brush into mixture to remove some of the liquid.
  6. Brush liquid over inside of bottom shell and fill with lettuce.
  7. Layer turkey (can use pepper turkey if desired), cheese and ham (can use capicola which is hot Italian ham if desired), over lettuce to create the sandwich.
  8. Spoon olive mixture down center of ham; cover with bread top.
  9. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight to blend flavors before serving.
  10. Cut into 2 inch slices.
