You don't have to tell them twice.

First day of fall.

It's that time of year when you can feel the entire farm breathe a sigh of relief.

Make Ahead Sandwich Recipe: Antipasto Baguettes with Artichokes, Mozzarella, Salami, and Easy Homemade Green Olive Paste

Make Ahead Antipasto Baguette Sandwiches with artichokes, mozzarella, green olives, and salami -
These scrumptious make ahead baguette sandwiches, piled high with salami, mozzarella, marinated artichoke hearts, and homemade green olivada, combine the flavors of an Italian antipasto platter in a handy, portable form.

While working on this Lemony Tuna and Artichoke Cooler-Pressed Sandwich recipe last spring, I fell in love with the idea of sandwiches that actually improve in flavor if allowed to sit for a while. Convenient and better tasting? That's my kind of food.

These antipasto baguettes taste best when prepared the day before serving, making them perfect for toting on picnics, hikes, and road trips, or packing in school and work lunches. Or just enjoy the simple pleasure of knowing that a delicious sandwich is waiting for you in the fridge.
