Mozzarella Stuffed Meatball Subs with Italian Vegetable Relish -

I have a great recipe for you guys today. Meatball Subs are one of my guys’ top meals. I could make them every week and there would be absolutely no complaints. I also like meatball subs…but I like to change them up every once in a while. Today I am sharing my recipe for Mozzarella Stuffed Meatball Subs with Italian Vegetable Relish.

Now my mozzarella stuffed meatballs are fantastic but it’s the Italian Vegetable Relish that makes these subs out of this world. The recipe combines Wish-Bone Italian dressing (the #1 Italian dressing) with several other flavor packed ingredients – the combination is just fantastic.

This is a pretty quick meal to throw together. You can make the relish ahead of time and let it marinade until you are ready. Heck you could also do the meatballs ahead of time. Just baked them about 30 minutes before you are ready to eat. Dinner in a snap!
