If I was going out to grab a sub, I’d be heading to Jersey Mike’s. No question about it. I’d get a sub Mike’s way, with vinegar and oil and salt and pepper and it’d disappear in no time. And if I wanted to make the same great sandwich at home, I’d make my copycat Jersey Mike’s sub. But if I’m in a big hurry and still want a great sandwich, I make my quick and easy cold cut sub sandwich. It’s not too different than what I can get at Jersey Mike’s. Main difference is that I use an off-the-shelf sub dressing that makes every sub great.

Don’t Forget The Salt And Pepper

It may sound odd, but I actually think the two ingredients that are essential to a tasty quick and easy cold cut sub sandwich are salt and pepper. Onions need seasoning. The tomatoes definitely need seasoning. And of course the lettuce needs it too.

No need to get fancy with the sandwich meats you use when you make your sub sandwich. Anything you like will do!
