Subway-style Sandwich

Subway-style Sandwich

I love Subway's turkey breast sandwich, so after many trials and errors, I somehow came up with a homemade version!
The sauce is basil-mayonnaise.

Ingredients

Lettuce
About 1/4
Tomato
About 1/2
Green peppers
1/2~1
Onion
1/4
French baguette
1/2
Thinly sliced ham
6~8 slices
Olives
4~5
Basil pesto
A small amount (to taste)
Mayonnaise
A small amount
Coarsely ground pepper and salt
A small amount

Steps

1. Finely julienne the lettuce. Remove the stem and seeds from the peppers, cut into two lengthwise, and cut thin slices horizontally. Thoroughly drain.
2. Slice the onion and lightly sprinkle salt on top. Let soak in water for 30 minutes to an hour, then drain. Rinse with water while rubbing to remove the salt. Lightly wring out the water. Thinly slice the olives and drain. If the olives have pits, remove them.
3. Slice (not all the way through) the bread lengthwise to create a space for the fillings. If you cut most of the way through, you can stuff in a lot of the filling.
4. Open the bread and arrange the ham, then the olives and onions. Put the olives toward the inside to prevent them from falling out. Sprinkle with pepper.
5. Top with basil paste and mayonnaise. If the basil pesto doesn't have salt, sprinkle salt on top.
6. This time, I used S&B's pesto sauce. This is salty, so I didn't add salt. Please adjust the salt to the pesto you use.
7. Add the tomato, lettuce, and green peppers and your sandwich is ready! If you wrap it in plastic, the vegetables stay put and it's easy to eat.

Story Behind this Recipe

This time, I used ham that is easy to get, but if you use turkey ham, it would be much more like the original!
If you use black olives, it's even more like Subway's.
