  • 1/2 cup black Mission olives, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped pickled cauliflower florets
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon chopped carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup marinated cocktail onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions To make the olive condiment:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the two types of olives, black mission olives, cauliflower, capers, celery, carrot, cocktail onions, celery seed, oregano, basil, black pepper, balsamic vinegar, and basil olive oil.
  • Mix together and transfer mixture into a glass jar (or another nonreactive container). If needed, pour in more oil to cover.
  • Cover jar or container and refrigerate at least overnight.

 To Make Sandwiches:

  • Cut bread in large triangles. Spread each piece of bread with equal amounts olive salad, including oil.
  • Layer 'bottom half' of each loaf with 1/2 of the salami, ham, mortadella, mozzarella, and Provolone. Replace 'top half' on each loaf and cut sandwich into quarters.
  • Serve immediately, or wrap tightly and refrigerate for a few hours.
