Salad and Subs a la Rita

"My mom Rita has been making this salad for as long as I can remember. It's a version of her antipasta platter, but as a salad. You can serve it with chips or crusty bread, which I recommend with everything,or it's great as an entree with grilled chicken or as a side with burgers, pasta or fish. We love it it with my mom's Italian subs—a perfect combination for Super Bowl Sunday. Game on! —Jill

You'll need:
1/2 lb. thick-cut Genoa salami, cut into cubes
1/2 lb. block Swiss cheese, cut into cubes
1 can pitted black olives
1 jar pimento-stuffed olives
1 medium red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp. oregano
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about a half a lemon)
4 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp. sugar

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Cover, shake to mix well, and place in fridge overnight. If you are in a pinch for time, you don't have to let it sit overnight, but it always tastes better when you do. 

Serve alongside Rita's Italian subs...

You'll need: 
One large ciabatta bread
Italian boiled ham, sliced
Fresh mozzarella, long slices
Roasted red peppers, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar

Slice bread and layer with ham, mozzarella, peppers, and onion. Drizzle with olive oil, red wine vinegar and sprinkle with oregano. Serves four. 

Go team!
