Submarine dressing?

My favorite is probably from Gordon Food Service, but I do not need a 2 gallon tub of it! I've bought some other ones from around here (Chicago), but I've never finished a bottle. Never found anything good. Heck, I prefer Wishbone Itlian to these other ones disguised as sub dressings.

What do you use or make? I don't have a huge selection of spices or oils but any good, tangy recipes would be appreciated.

    I just use a good olive oil that I brush liberally on both halves of the bread, and then I sprinkle some dried oregano on it.

    Let me second balsamic vinegar...We use that lately more than the red wine. Find one you like,since taste can vary a lot...a sprinkle just a bit to taste, since it is stronger than wine vinegar. We love it!!

    Penzey's makes a Sandwich Sprinkle that is wicked good! I put it in the sandwich as well as on top. Good also with olive oil brushed on French bread, top with the Sprinkle, and some grated Parmesan, Romano or Grana Padano then bake until crusty.

    For a little zing, instead of vinegar try using the juice from pickled hot banana pepper rings or pickled pepperoncini peppers.

    Olive oil
    Banana pepper ring/pepperoncini juice
    oregano
    garlic

    I think the consensus here is that you should make it at home to your own taste and forget about the stuff that comes from the grocery store.

    As for us it is simply a touch of wine vinegar, a generous amount of olive oil, salt, pepper, and a bit of oregano (and, in summer, a few chopped up basil leaves ).

    Cheers, John

    It took a while to find a notebook that I had from college, but if anyone is still interested, I wrote down some of the ingredients that went into the sub dressing that was made at the pizza/sub shop that I worked at back in '76-'77. Maybe there was something else added, but this what used to be set out for prep.

    Pomace olive oil blend (food service product)
    White vinegar
    Oregano
    Crushed,Red Pepper (table pizza condiment)
    Basil
    Granulated garlic (not the powder, but much coarser. Also table condiment)
    Minced Onion (not the flakes, but more like tiny chips)
    Lemon Juice (bottled)
    Grill Salt (concoction of salt,msg,black pepper,and onion powder used to salt burgers and fries)
    Corn Syrup

    This stuff was made up in batches and put up in the walk-in to mellow for a while before used. The owner's son would make up a box full of large,clear condiment bottles that were probably about a quart. The dressing wasn't made in one large batch and then transferred to the bottles. Instead the bottles were lined up and ingredients individually added. By eye, the bottles looked 2/3 oil/1/3 liquid with a band of herbs in the middle that had to be larger then 1". The herbs would mostly settle down to the bottom in a couple of days. One of these bottles,brine from peppers,some large,black olives,and Feta cheese was blended with a powdered thickening agent to make a creamy dressing that was dispensed in little containers for dressing for plated salads.

    Hope this is of some use to someone

    We use a bottled italian dressing and find it just fine. If we are out, a drizzle of olive oil, a splash of red wine vinegar, and a sprinkle of oregano works good.

    i use my famous wowdogs (trademark) concoction:

    Miracle Whip
    Hunts Catsup
    India Relish
    Worcestershire sauce
    ****Secret**** Beef Gravy broth from Dinty Moore stew

    Proportions I can't tell, but it is delicious on Oscar Mayar dogs, or your favorite sub sandwich. Yummo

    I just prefer a brief squirt of olive oil, hefty squirt of red wine vinigar, and a few shakes for oregano and black pepper.
