How to Make It

Step 1    

In a food processor, pulse the olives with the garlic and lemon zest until the olives are finely chopped. Add 1/4 cup of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the olivada on the cut sides of the rolls.

Step 2    

In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar with the oregano and 1/2 cup of the olive oil. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Preheat a grill pan. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini with the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the zucchini slices over high heat for about 5 minutes, turning once, until tender and lightly charred.

Step 4    

Mound the zucchini onto the rolls and drizzle with a little of the dressing. Top with the mozzarella, tomatoes and basil and drizzle with more of the dressing. Close the subs and serve right away.

Make Ahead

The grilled zucchini can be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before assembling the subs.

Suggested Pairing

Vouvray, made with the Chenin Blanc grape from France's Loire Valley, tends to have herbal, smoky flavors that go particularly well with grilled vegetables.
