    Feast Your Eyes!'s Note:

    This two-fisted sandwich boasts a variety of colors and flavors. Like red, plump tomatoes; fresh basil and mozzarella; red onions and green peppers; salami, ham and capacolla - drizzled with homemade Italian vinaigrette. These classic Italian flavors make a great combination for this well-loved Italian American sandwich. Chips or a scoop of potato salad and a piece of seasonal fruit make this a delicious, satisfying meal.

      Loved this! It was a great blend of flavors. I omitted the salt and olives (personal preference). Thanks for sharing!

      Excellent flavor combination. I made just a couple of changes to suit our taste and this is one of those recipes that has endless possibilities. I used a red pepper, which I had and provolone cheese instead of the mozzarella, which was what I had and left off the black olives and mayo. Used only the Italian vinaigrette, which was excellent and really complimented the flavors. I also could not find the Italian spiced ham, so used smoked turkey. I served this on Italian Ciabatta which was excellent and some Kittencal's Best Deviled Eggs on the side. This will be made again and again. Can't wait till the fresh tomatoes start coming in. Thanks for sharing. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag Game.
