Cooking time




  • 1 big loaf of french bread

  • Swiss cheese slices

  • Lunch meat turkey

  • Salami

  • Pepperoni

  • Tomatoes, sliced

  • Salad Grinder Mixture
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 1 tbs minced garlic

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 tbsp sliced banana peppers (with 1 tbs of their juices)

  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce

  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Make the grinder salad: To a medium sized bowl add all of the grinder salad ingredients except the banana peppers, lettuce, and onion. Whisk well. Now stir in the banana peppers, lettuce, and onion. Store in the refrigerator to keep cool.
  • Slice the bread in half lengthwise and I like to remove some of bread in the center to add more emphasis on the meats and salad mixture place slices of cheese on both sides of the bread. Place the bread on a sheet pan and bake for 13 minutes to melt the cheese and get the bread crispy. (this baking set is optional but I love doing it)
  • Remove the bread from the oven and place slices of turkey, salami, pepperoni, tomato, and the salad mixture on. Slice the bread up and enjoy!
  • Add all of the ingredients to a large cutting board (except for the bread) and chop into small pieces now add this mixture into sub rolls or bread and enjoy!
