Another Excellent Sandwich
can be found here.
This recipe is from Three Many Cooks which is one of my favorite cooking blogs. Of course, I tweaked the recipe to suit my likes/dislikes. I made these a couple of weekends ago while my parents were visiting and we all really enjoyed them. Here’s my version:
2 or so cloves garlic
1/4 cup capers
1 cup black olives
1 cup pimento-stuffed green olives
2 T. red wine vinegar
2 t. dried oregano
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Mince the garlic and then capers in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse to chop it up. This can be stored in the fridge for several weeks.
When you’re ready to assemble the sandwiches take the bread of your choice (even hoagie rolls will do– this from the bread snob known as Annie) and spread one side with olive salad. Top this with a couple of different cheeses (I used pepper jack and provolone — I think that sliced mozzarella would be good and I really would love to try it with fresh mozzarella, also). You should also add some quartered artichoke hearts and some red onion (if you like it). At this point you could go ahead and eat the sandwich but I suggest that you grill it in some olive oil.
Happy Thursday and last day of September (sniff) to y’all.
