Classic Cold-Cut Sub Sandwiches

  • Preparation 15 MIN
  • Servings 4
Submarine sandwiches are named for the underwater boats of a similar shape. This Italian-American specialty goes by different names in different places. In New England, they’re known as grinders. New York loves its heroes, Philadelphia has its hoagies and New Orleans serves up po’ boys.



  1. On a work surface, cut the buns in half horizontally without cutting all the way through. Spread the inside of the buns with the mayonnaise. Add the cheese, followed by the cold cuts, tomatoes, lettuce, green pepper and onion. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and oregano. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the vegetables and close the submarines.


The foundation of a good sub is a roll that’s easy on the teeth but has enough crust to hold cold cuts, cheese and veggies without getting soggy. Best not to use a baguette, you’ll destroy your masterpiece just trying to tear into it!
