Whether you’re headed out to a ball game or spending a sunny day at a local park, thoughts of what to feed your hungry Minis won’t be far from your mind. Sure, picking up your favorite take-out is always an option, but we’re certain this easy and delicious recipe from Weeknight Society will become a new favorite all summer long.

Picnic Sandwiches


1 large loaf crusty bread
8 ounces fresh mozzarella
1 pound fresh sliced salami
1 large bunch basil leaves
1 jar roasted bell peppers in oil
1 large bunch arugula
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
2 cups green olives, roughly chopped
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Step One
Slice the top off of the loaf of bread. With a spoon, hollow out as much of the inside of the bread as is possible. Brush the inside of the bread with olive oil.

Step Two
Layer each ingredient in a single layer on top of each other. Continue stacking ingredients until the loaf of bread is full.

Step Three
Replace the top on the bread and press down with something heavy. Let rest for at least 10 minutes. Serve with potato chips.
