Make-Your-Own-Sandwich Night

This is one of the most popular dinners at our house. It never fails and I can’t quite figure out why, because it takes so little effort. But I get good-quality ingredients, like deli salami and real ciabatta rolls, and maybe that’s part of it. We can make whatever sandwich we want from a really tasty buffet. And bonus: We’ll have leftovers of everything, so if we make sure to buy enough bread, we can do it all again the next night.

Here’s how I plan it:

Bread

  • Individual ciabatta rolls, toasted
  • Sliced loaf of rye or sourdough, toasted

Meats

  • Salami
  • Ham
  • Turkey

Cheese

  • Provolone
  • Mozzarella
  • Swiss
  • Buffalo mozzarella, sliced

Greens

  • Baby spinach leaves, arugula, or crunchy salad leaves
  • Basil

Vegetables

  • Sliced plum/Roma tomatoes
  • Sliced rings of bell peppers or baby peppers

Spreads

  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard
  • Yellow mustard
  • Ketchup

Extras

  • Basil pesto
  • Olives
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Olive oil
