To Make Olive Salad: In a medium bowl, combine the green olives, kalamata olives, garlic, cauliflower, capers, celery, carrot, pepperoncini, sweet onions, celery seeds, oregano, basil, black pepper, vinegar, olive oil and rapeseed oil. Mix together and transfer mixture into a glass jar (or other non-reactive container). If needed, pour in more oil to cover. Cover jar or container and refrigerate at least overnight.
To Make Sandwiches: Cut loaves of bread in half horizontally; hollow out some of the excess bread to make room for filling. Spread each piece of bread with equal amounts olive salad, including oil. Layer 'bottom half' of each loaf with 1/4 of the salami, ham, garlic sausage, mozzarella and Cheddar. Replace 'top half' on each loaf and cut sandwich into halves.
Serve immediately or wrap tightly and refrigerate for a few hours; this will allow for the flavours to mingle and the olive salad to soak into the bread.
If pickled cauliflower florets, marinated sweet onions and pepperoncini aren't available, substitute in marinated vegetables of your choice.
