ATLANTA – On Feb. 27 Jimmy John’s announced a new sandwich. The QSR sandwich shop will offer a twist on the Classic Italian sandwich for a limited time.
The Caprese Salami Pesto contains roasted tomatoes, Genoa salami, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, olive oil, oregano, onion, mayonnaise and is topped with fresh mozzarella.
“We set out to develop a sandwich that was full of delicious Italian flavors,” said Dustin Hilinski, director of culinary innovation at Jimmy John’s. “But we also wanted to make it unique to Jimmy John’s, which starts with hand-sliced salami – because we’ve always hand-sliced our meats as that makes all the difference – and then layer the other ingredients atop our iconic, freshly baked bread to create the most satisfying sandwich.”
