  • 1 head (7 oz.) radicchio, cored and separated into leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces (3/4 of a loaf) ciabatta bread, split horizontally
  • 1 jar (16 oz.) roasted red peppers, drained, patted dry, and halved
  • 6 slices regular or aged provolone cheese (about 4 oz.)
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced dry salami
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Put radicchio on a large rimmed baking sheet. Lightly brush all over with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake until wilted, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, open up bread on another baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, 8 minutes. Let radicchio and bread cool.
  2. 2. Layer radicchio on bottom half of ciabatta, then top with roasted peppers, provolone, salami, and basil. Close bread and cut into 4 sandwiches. Combine vinegar and mustard in a small bowl. Just before serving, drizzle dressing into sandwiches through a cut side. Serve with plenty of napkins.
  3. Keeps: Up to 2 hours at room temperature, 3 hours with ice packs.
