    Easy to make and nice. I would skip the dipping sauce though if i was you.  -  07 Oct 2009


    One of my favorite sandwiches to make for lunch for my husband and I. I have also tried out a few alternatives that are equally delicious. I always use good season's italian salad dressing mix and use balsamic for the vinegar part and olive oil for the oil part and drizzle over the inside of the bread instead of dipping. The added seasoning and the olive oil/balsamic give it such a great flavor. I have added a slice of provolone which adds wonderful flavor. I have added roasted red peppers instead of tomatoes and grilled chicken. I have also used all kinds of diff breads but we like the italian or harder crusted breads best. The original recipe and all the diff ways I make this are all 5 stars! You can't go wrong.  -  09 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
