Italian Style Paleo Sub Sandwich

Italian Style Paleo Sub Sandwich with Orange Endive Salad

When Jeff & I rode our bikes to Yorkville for my first triathlon I packed these Italian Paleo Sub Sandwiches to eat during our ride. When we decided to stop for lunch, Jeff & I both enjoyed our meal.

I added the subs to this week’s meal plan originally as an extra snack for Jeff, but instead I decided to make them as a quick lunch along with a side salad.

This recipe is super simple and quick to make so without further adieu, on with the recipe.

Italian Style Paleo Sub Sandwich

Yield: 2 Servings


  • 4 slices black forest ham
  • 2 slices baby swiss cheese
  • 8 slices genoa salami
  • 6 slices roast beef
  • mustard
  • Paleo Mayo
  • dried oregano, to taste
  • coarse ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup onion, chopped

  1. Lay out 3 slices of roast beef, slightly overlapping on a plate.
  2. Lay 2 slices of ham perpendicular to the roast beef slices, again slightly overlapping each other.
  3. Lay down 4 slices of salami, two-by-two, on top of the ham.
  4. Lay down 1 slice of swiss cheese on top of the salami.
  5. Spread some mustard and mayo on top of the cheese.
  6. Arrange one of the handfulls of onion on top of the cheese.
  7. If you haven't already, slice the ends off the banana pepper, slice pepper down the center and deseed. Then chop the banana pepper. Add a handfull of pepper and mix in with the onion.
  8. Add any seasonings you like, I added oregano and black pepper.
  9. Next roll up the sub, starting the roll along the longest side.
  10. Cut the sub in half and put to the side to use the rest of the space on the plate for the Orange Endive Salad.
  11. If you're making another sub, follow directions 1-9 above one more time with the leftover ingredients.
  12. Package up any leftover ingredients you may have for another day, or use them on top of your salad.
