This was pretty good! I did do things a bit differently though. I mixed up everything but the cheese and let it all marinate in the salad dressing overnight. I sliced Italian bread and put a slice of provolone on each piece and toasted it in the oven, 'til the cheese was kinda bubbly and turning brown around the edges. Then I took the salami salad and spooned some over the melted cheese and threw it back in the oven for a few more minutes. Once it was warm enough, I took it out of the oven and slapped both sides together. Instead of a cold sandwich, it was warm, and there was no sogginess. There was greasiness, though, from the heated salami, so it was bit messy. BUT SO GOOD!
Definitely a different salami sandwich. I drained the mixture well before adding it to the bread, but the bread was still too soggy for my liking. Still, this was an interesting idea and a very flavorful mixture. It might be good on toasted baguette slices as an appetizer.
