BEST Sub Sandwich, Ever!

Alana Rae

Hi! I'm a second-grader from SF who loves to swim and cook with my dad. I also love harvesting the strawberries on our back porch! My favorite food is watermelon.

I love making this sandwich with my dad! You can add meat if you like, or just enjoy it as a veggie sub like I do. It’s the best on a hot sunny day with chips and a cold glass of lemonade!

Pantry Items Used

Oregano | Peppers, Bell | Black Krim Tomato | Olives


  • 1 loaf of french bread

  • 5-7 slices of cheese (my favorite is Havarti)

  • 2 tomatoes, sliced (either Beefsteak or Black Krim)

  • 2 cups lettuce, chopped

  • 2 cup of olives (black)

  • 1/2 cup of dill pickles, sliced

  • 1/2 purple onion, sliced

  • 1/2 bell pepper (I use green, but yellow also works)

  • 1 Tbsp Italian dressing

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • Mayonaise, “Best Foods” Mayo is the best (no, I’m not a spokesperson:-)

  • Mustard

  • Dash of black pepper

  • Dash of salt

  • Dash of oregano


  1. First, cut the loaf of bread down the middle and remove a bulk of the inner bread/dough down the middle. (Inner bread can be discarded or made into little dough balls to snack on later!) Place your sub bread on a large cookie sheet and set aside.

  2. Next, prep all the veggies-slicing or chopping. Place them on a large plate and set aside.

  3. Now, start putting it all together. Spread a generous amount of mayo on both sides of the bread, and then sprinkle mustard “polka dots” on top of the mayo.

  4. Next, add (in this order) lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, (optional meat), Italian dressing, olive oil, bell peppers, onions, olives, and pickles.

  5. Lastly, sprinkle the seasonings to your liking… salt, black pepper, and oregano.

  6. “Close” the open sub and slice it into either two or four sections. Plate your portion with some chips and enjoy!
