They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Rachael Ray shares a recipe that her husband enjoys.


  • 1 cup giardiniera (Hot pickled vegetable salad), drained
  • 1 cup packed baby arugula leaves
  • 1/4 cup pitted green olives
  • 8 slices pullman-style white bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 thick slices provolone cheese
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto cotto or boiled ham
  • 8 thin slices hot soppressata
  • 8 thin slices genoa salami
  • Cooking Directions

    Using a food processor, grind the giardiniera, arugula and olives.

    Coat 1 side of the bread slices with the butter. Build each sandwich as follows: a bread slice (buttered side out), giardiniera relish, a cheese slice, 2 prosciutto slices, 2 soppressata slices, 2 salami slices, another cheese slice, more relish and another bread slice (buttered side out).

    Preheat a griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the sammies and cook, turning once, until the cheese melts, 6 to 8 minutes.
