For the sandwich

  • 2 loaves French bread sliced horizontally
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 1 pound thin sliced deli sandwich meat
  • 2 large tomatoes sliced
  • 1 large sweet onion sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano more or less, to taste, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt more or less, to taste
  • red wine vinegar diluted to 5%, see note
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Assemble the sandwich by dividing the meat between the bread halves.
  • Add the tomato and onion slices. Top with a few good handfuls of the lettuce.
  • Sprinkle the sandwiches with the red wine vinegar. Don't be shy with it.
  • Combine the canola and olive oils and sprinkle over the sandwiches. More is better, in my opinion.
  • Finally, sprinkle tops with the oregano and salt. Add the top halves of the bread, slice in half in the middle. Serve.


Note: The red wine vinegar you use should be dilute to 5%. I checked a few of the bottles available at our local grocery store and all were 5%, so I did not need to dilute the vinegar any further.
