Hoagie Dip tastes just like a sub sandwich from Subway but in dip form. This appetizer is kind of like building your own sandwich. The best way to eat it is to spoon it on top of slices of bread.
- 1/2 red onion diced
- 4 pickled pepperoncini peppers drained and diced (reserve some pepperoncini juice for the sauce)
- 1/2 head iceberg lettuce chopped about the size of nickels
- 1 large tomato halved, seeded, and diced
- 1/4 pound deli-sliced Genoa salami sliced and diced
- 1/4 pound deli-sliced ham sliced and diced
- 1/4 pound deli-sliced prosciutto sliced and diced
- 1/4 pound deli-sliced roast turkey diced
- 1/4 pound deli-sliced provolone cheese sliced and diced
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon pepperoncini juice
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 10- to-12- inch round loaf of choice hollowed out
- 1 sliced baguette
- Combine the chopped vegetables, meats and cheese in a large bowl.
- In a small bowl mix the mayonnaise, olive oil, vinegar, pepperoncini juice, oregano, and red pepper flakes and stir until everything is all mixed up.
- If you are going to serve within an hour, pour the dressing over the meat/veggie mixture and toss until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- If you are NOT eating it soon, keep all ingredients refrigerated and toss together right before so that the lettuce does not get soggy.
- Carve out the center of the bread loaf to make a bowl and cut the top piece taken out into bite-size pieces. Serve the hoagie dip in the bread bowl, with the extra bread and baguette slices.
- Spread dip over bread and enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
We found it best to spread it over sliced hoagie rolls instead of actually dipping it. So you can basically feed your footballs fans subs without the tedious work of making all of the sandwiches.
