|Olive Spread Ingredients:|
|1 cup||Pastene Whole Ripe Olives, finely diced|
|1 cup||Pastene Pitted Kalamata Olives, finely diced|
|1/2 cup||Pastene Marinated Artichokes, finely diced|
|1/3 cup||Pastene Roasted Peppers, finely diced|
|3||green onions, minced|
|1 Tbsp||Pastene Minced Garlic|
|1/4 cup||celery, thinly sliced|
|2 Tbsp||flat leaf parsley|
|2 tsp||dried oregano|
|3 Tbsp||Pastene Red Wine Vinegar|
|3/4 cup||Pastene Extra Virgin Olive Oil|
|pinch||red pepper flakes|
|1||loaf focaccia or Itailan Round bread|
|1/3 lb||Genoa Salami|
|1/2 lb||sliced ham|
|1/2 lb||sliced provolone|
|1/2 lb||sliced mozzarella|
- First, combine all the olive spread ingredients in a bowl and let it marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
- Cut the bread in half (if using round bread, cut in half and remove some of the bread in the center with your fingers). Spread both sides of the bread with generous amounts of your olive spread. When spreading on the bottom layer avoid spooning too much liquid onto the bread as it will soak down and become soggy.
- Place the bread on a baking sheet. Layer the bottom with coppa, then mortadella, then salami, then provolone, then ham, then mozzarella. Carefully flip the other side of the bread with the smeared olive spread over meat and cheese. Place another baking sheet on top of the sandwich and balance a heavy item like a cast iron skillet on top. Refrigerate for another hour.
- Slice into rectangles (or wedges if using a round loaf). I liked trimming the edge off so the sandwiches were perfect rectangles, but you don’t have to.
