Our Low FODMAP Italian Sub was created with the intention of showing you that you CAN have some of your beloved Italian salumi favorites, like prosciutto and carefully sourced hard salami – which can be low FODMAP. Now we have to address the word “sub”, as in “submarine sandwich”. Depending on where you live in the U.S. you might use the term “sub” or maybe “hoagie” or “grinder” or “hero” to describe what Merriam-Webster defines as a “a large sandwich on a long split roll”. Well, here is our low FODMAP version!
Slice the bread right down the center top, going almost all the way through. Press the bread open like a book, then dab a little over half the salad dressing on both cut sides of the bread. I like to use a pastry brush. Arrange cheese to cover the bread, then add meats. Crown with lettuce and olives and red pepper if using and drizzle with remaining salad dressing.
Sandwich is ready to serve, or wrap tight in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Allow to come to room temp before serving.
Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.
Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
