  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    To make the salad topping, chop the iceberg lettuce into 1/2-inch ribbons. Thinly slice the red onion. Add both to a medium bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Add the cherry peppers, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined. Taste, adjusting the seasoning as needed.
  4. Step 4

    Heat the broiler to high. Use a serrated knife to split the roll(s) in half lengthwise, leaving the roll(s) attached on one side so that it opens like a book. Place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Step 5

    Place the cheese in a single layer on both halves of the open roll(s). Broil until melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Top the melted cheese with layers of ham, salami, prosciutto, and tomato.
  7. Step 7

    Top with a generous helping of the salad mixture. Top with grated Parmesan. Close the sandwich(es), then slice in half, if desired. Serve immediately.
