This big sandwich combines a fresh caprese¬†sandwich with deli-sliced roast beef. It’s great for picnics or summer get-togethers.



  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 3 cup torn green leaf lettuce
  • 1 large loaf of soft white bread, sliced in half horizontally (see note)
  • 1 pound deli-sliced roast beef
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 10 fresh basil leaves


  1. Whisk the vinegar, Italian seasoning, and olive oil in a large bowl. Place the lettuce in the bowl, season it with a couple pinches of salt and pepper, and gently toss it to coat it evenly with the dressing.
  2. Place the lettuce on the bottom half of the bread. Top the lettuce with the roast beef, followed by the mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. Spring a few pinches of salt over the top of the basil and tomatoes.
  3. Place the top half of the bread on top of the sandwich. Slice the sandwich into eight smaller sandwiches and serve.


  • I bought a large loaf of bread in the bakery section at my grocery store for this recipe. I think this sandwich works best with a soft loaf, instead of one with a chewy crust, so look for something similar where you shop.
  • Because the nutritional content varies greatly between types of bread and brands, I have left it out of the nutritional information. The estimate include information for the sandwich fillings only.
