  1. 1 large ciabatta roll
  2. 1/4 pound ham (rosemary, I recommend Fra'Mani)
  3. 1/4 pound salami
  4. 1/2 red pepper (roasted)
  5. 1/2 yellow pepper (roasted)
  6. 1/4 pound fresh mozzarella
  7. 6 large basil leaves
  8. 1 handful arugula
  9. 1/2 tablespoon white balsamic glaze
  10. 1/2 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Begin by cutting your ciabatta roll in half and then toasting the bread in the oven or in a toaster for a few minutes.
  3. Drizzle both of the interior sides of the ciabatta with olive oil and then smear the white balsamic glaze and set the top half aside.
  4. On the bottom half of the glazed ciabatta bun, add the basil, the salami, the mozzarella, and the roasted red pepper, the roasted yellow pepper and then lastly the arugula.
  5. Put the remaining half of the glaze ciabatta on top. 
  6. Before serving, tightly wrap the sandwich in wax paper or butcher paper and slice it down the middle with a serrated knife. Enjoy!TipLeave the paper on the sandwich, only peeling the paper back for the bite you're about to take so that the ingredients don't fall out of the sandwich as you're eating it.
