ITALIAN GRINDER

Whether you call it a sub, hoagie, hero, or grinder, this is a quintessential Italian-American sandwich.  


1 loaf crusty Italian bread, cut into 2 (6-inch/15-cm) pieces 
Mayonnaise
Capicola or other Italian ham, sliced
Pepperoni, sliced
Genoa salami, sliced 
Provolone cheese, sliced 
Shredded lettuce
Onion slices
Tomato slices
Pepperoncini peppers, stems removed and sliced
Extra-virgin olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Garlic powder
Freeze-dried or chopped fresh oregano Red pepper flakes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cut the bread in half to get two pieces, each about 6-inches (15-cm) long. 
Then slice the pieces lengthwise to make sandwich rolls.
Spread a little mayonnaise on each side of the bread.
Layer the bottom half with a slice of the ham, pepperoni, salami, and provolone. 
Place under the broiler for a minute or two, just to melt the cheese.
Add the lettuce, onion slices, tomato slices, and pepperoncini. 
Drizzle with a little extra-virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar.
Sprinkle with a little garlic powder, oregano, and red pepper flakes. 
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place the top half of bread on and serve. 

Serves 2
