Smoked Ham Sandwiches with Marinated Peppers and Onions

Rated:
Serves 4
Sherry vinegar adds a distinct savory flavor to sweet peppers that pairs well with smoked ham. These sandwiches are quite portable when wrapped tightly, so consider packing them in your lunch box for work or a picnic. Pack a few potato chips to eat along with the sandwiches, if you like.
Ingredients: 
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh or dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 small yellow or green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 medium white or yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 large white hoagie rolls or demi-baguettes, halved lengthwise
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 6 ounces sliced smoked ham
  • 4 leaves green leaf lettuce
  • pinch ground black pepper
Method: 
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, garlic, mustard, oregano, salt and pepper until well combined. Stir in pepper and onions and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight.

Layer rolls with provolone, cheddar, ham and lettuce, then top with marinated peppers and onions and drizzle with a bit of the marinade, if you like. Cut sandwiches in half crosswise, transfer to plates and serve.
