Italian Hoagie Dip

I ran across this recipe and made a modified version of it – original is linked below.   I did make some rosemary focaccia bread to go along with this and it turned out amazing!  You can also make this into a cold pasta salad as well.  If the bread didn’t turn out, that is what I was going to do.


– Genoa Salami – I used maybe 1 1/2 cups of small, diced pieces.
– Pepperoni – I used maybe 1 1/2 cups of small, diced pieces.
– 1/4 pound of ham – I used about 3/4 of the package that I had bought from the deli, diced in small pieces.
– Banana peppers – I used about a cup of these, diced in small pieces.
– 1 small red onion minced – two are in the picture, but I ended up using only one.
– 2 TBSP chopped parsley – I used fresh from our aerogarden.
– 1/4 cup olive oil
– 1 TBSP chives
– 1 TBSP basil
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Other optional ingredients:  capicola, cheese diced up in little cubes, roasted red pepper, Italian seasoning instead of chives and basil.  


  1.  Combine all of the above into a bowl and mix well to combine.  Feel free to put the oil, chives, basil, garlic powder and red pepper flakes in a separate bowl first and then pour over the rest of the ingredients.
  2.   Once all is combined, serve immediately or chill and then serve.

Since we had made some rosemary focaccia bread, I put the dip into a little tray to make it more presentable, along with the bread.
