  • 3 (9.4-ounce) packages Fresh Express® Caesar Chopped Kits®
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar giardiniera, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained, chopped
  • 1 (6-ounce) can green olives, drained, diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 (2-pound) round loaf Italian bread
  • 8 ounces sliced provolone cheese
  • 8 ounces sliced Genoa salami
  • 8 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese
  • 8 ounces sliced mortadella


  • Combine the giardiniera, red peppers, olives, celery, parsley, and 2 tablespoons of the reserved giardiniera liquid in a bowl; mix well.
  • Cut the bread in half horizontally; tear out some of the bread, leaving about 1/2-inch to create a bowl. Fill the bottom bread bowl with the olive salad. Layer with the provolone cheese, salami, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Place the lettuce from one bag of the Fresh Express® Caesar Chopped Kit® into a bowl; toss with the salad dressing. Add the toppings; toss to combine. Place in the top bread bowl; layer with mortadella.
  • Carefully flip the top half of the bread over and place on top of the fillings on the bottom half. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap; press down to compress the sandwich. Let sit for 15 minutes to let the flavors blend.
  • Cut into eight wedges.
  • Make the remaining two packages of the Fresh Express® Caesar Chopped Kit® to serve as a side dish.


Note: Most large round Italian bread loaves will be sliced so, order an unsliced one from the bakery of your local Italian grocery store. Depending on your heat level preference, use mild or hot giardiniera.
