Olive Salad

  • 1 cup pitted castelvetrano olives, chopped
  • 1 cup pickled vegetables from jarred giardiniera mix, finely chopped
  • ½ cup pitted black olives, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pickling liquid from giardiniera
  • 1 tablespoon capers, finely chopped


  • 1 (6 by 14-inch long) loaf of ciabatta, sliced in half lengthwise 
  • ½ pound thinly sliced Capicola
  • ½ pound thinly sliced Mortadella
  • ½ pound thinly sliced Genoa
  • pound thinly sliced Mozzarella
  • pound thinly sliced Provolone


To make the olive salad

  • Combine all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cover and chill until ready to assemble the sandwich.

To assemble the sandwich

  • Layer the meat and cheese onto the bottom half of the bread. I like to layer in this order: capicola, mozzarella, mortadella, provolone, genoa.
  • Evenly top with olive salad and place the top half of bread on it to form your sandwich.
  • Tightly wrap up and chill sandwich until serving.
  • To serve, using a serrated knife, cut the sandwich into 24 pieces, securing each piece with a wooden pick.
