Servings: 1
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes


1 (6-inch) Italian roll, split lengthwise
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
½ cup thinly sliced romaine lettuce
olive oil, to taste
red wine vinegar, to taste
6-8 slices thinly sliced mortadella
4-5 slices salami picante
5-6 slices salami nostrano
5-6 slices pepperoni
thinly sliced red onions (sliced, super fucking thin)
shaved provolone


Smear the mayonnaise on the inside of the bottom half of the roll and grind some black pepper over the top. Place the lettuce on the inside of the top half and drizzle with olive oil and the vinegar. Top the mayo with the mortadella, then the salami picante, nostrano, and pepperoni. Finish with the red onions and cheese, fold together, slice in half, and enjoy.
