This party sub is an easy way to serve a crowd! The dressing used here is great for a sandwich like this–our taste testers whole-heartedly approved! This sandwich was one of their favorite recipes and they all agreed the dressing was what made it great!
1 loaf fresh French bread (either homemade or from the bakery section of the grocery store)
Secret Sandwich Spread (see recipe below)
5–6 slices deli sliced cheese (I liked smoked provolone)
8–10 ounces high quality sliced deli meat (I like a combination of ham and turkey, but your favorite will work!)
5–6 crisp lettuce leaves (Romaine works well)
1 large tomato, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
Oregano (optional, but delicious)
Slice the loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Using a spatula or a squeezy dressing bottle, spread the dressing on both sides of the bread. Place the cheese on the bottom half, then top with a layer of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Top with layers of deli meat, and, if desired, lightly sprinkle with oregano. Place the top of the loaf of bread on top of everything.
Cover or wrap in foil, parchment, or plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Before serving, slice the sandwich into 2-3” slices. Serve with chips and fresh fruit.
Easy Sandwich Dressing
½ cup mayonnaise (light mayo is fine)
½ cup sour cream (light sour cream is fine)
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
Whisk to combine and store in a covered container or a dressing bottle. You will not use the entire recipe for 1 party sub, but it is great to have on hand for future sandwiches; you can store it for 1-2 weeks.
