  • 1-1/3 cups giardiniera
  • 2/3 cup chopped pitted green olives
  • 2/3 cup pitted ripe olives
  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) unsliced French bread
  • 1/4 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli ham
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli turkey
  • 1/2 pound sliced reduced-fat provolone cheese
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef
  • 1/2 pound sliced reduced-fat Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings


  1. Place giardiniera and olives in a food processor; cover and process until coarsely chopped. Set aside.
  2. Cut bread in half lengthwise; carefully hollow out top and bottom of loaves, leaving 1/2-in. shells (discard removed bread or save for another use). Place on two large baking sheets. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes or until toasted. Brush bottom halves with dressing; layer with ham, turkey and provolone cheese. Spread top halves with olive mixture; layer with roast beef and Colby-Monterey Jack cheese.
  3. Broil 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Layer bottom halves with tomatoes, lettuce and onion; replace tops. Cut each loaf into six slices.
