Italian Sandwiches with Olive Tapenade are one of our favorite lunches! These sandwiches are loaded with thin sliced salami and thick slices of mozzarella cheese, then topped with a yummy olive tapenade spread (which is amazing if you have never tried it!) and arugula lettuce. We especially love eating it on toasted baguette bread. Please don’t make this on a soft bread or it will be soggy and won’t taste nearly as good!
Our friends Candace and Chris first made this Italian Sandwich with Olive Tapenade for us on a boating trip and we have been addicted ever since. This sandwich is bursting with flavor! It’s a nice break from the traditional sandwich.
Italian Sandwiches with Olive Tapenade
Finely chop the Kalamata Olives and mix in a generous amount of Balsamic Vinegar for the tapenade. Spread a good amount on the bread and top with the lettuce, cheese, and salami. If you are packing this sandwich for lunch or an outing, wait to spread on the tapenade until just before eating.
