This has cottage cheese in the dressing so it is not vegan :(

Definitely not as good as a muffaletta. Way too many bread layers and such a soggy mess when it was all done and pressed. I will go back to my panini recipes or my muffaletta recipe. Disastrous
Absolutely awful. This recipe took 3 hrs to complete and the end result was a salty soggy holy mess. It was so bad I threw out 3/4 of the sandwich. I dare Ms. Stewart to demo this on her show. Oh and it was damn pricey too. Waste of time and energy. I could have slapped a couple of raw veggies and cheese between two slices of bread and made a better sandwich. Arrgh!!!
Upon first read this piece of advice may sound elementary, but it's worth heeding: buy the bread first. Outside of specialty bakeries, huge loaves are rare as hen's teeth. After you choose the bread, then buy the veggies. In my case, I bought the veggies first, then the bread; i.e., I had more veggies than I needed. Lastly, I quit grilling years ago, so I roasted the veggies to a grilled effect. The sandwich was great. And very healthy.
