  • 6 ounces salami , thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces ham , thinly sliced

  1. To make olive salad, combine olives, green and red peppers, pickled vegetables, capers, pepperoncini, and olive oil in a food processor. Process until finely chopped but still coarse and crunchy, just like you see on my photos.
  2. Slice the loaf of bread in half length-wise (optionally, you can remove a little bit of the insides of the bread to make room for the olive mix). Or, if you’re using sandwich buns, slice each bun in half.
