Review: Subway - Turkey Italiano Melt

Subway's Turkey Italiano Melt features a base of genoa salami, pepperoni, and turkey plus your standard choice of bread, cheese (provolone is the suggested cheese), veggies, and condiments (including the new Subway vinaigrette, which is the suggested sauce).

It was $4.50 for a 6-inch sub, which is the middle-tier price for their sandwiches.

I got the sub with the 9-grain wheat bread (because they were out of white), provolone, onions and bell peppers (toasted with the bread, meats, and cheese), lettuce, tomato, and the new Subway vinaigrette.

The vinaigrette is the only new component of the sub and pretty much tastes like a standard Italian dressing. There's a nice tang to it, a hint of oregano, and enough flavor to stand on its own without feeling the need for any other sauces.

Like most Subway melts, there's not enough cheese to deliver that gooey creaminess unless you open the wallet to spring for extra. Otherwise, there's only two half-slices of thin provolone that I couldn't really taste.

While there's turkey here, it's a relatively mild meat and paired with the salami and pepperoni, it's hard to make out beyond just an extra meatiness. The salami and pepperoni added a nice bit of cured salt and spice.

The vegetables were fresh and added light flavors as well as moisture and crispness.

Overall, I enjoyed Subway's Turkey Italiano Melt or rather I enjoyed Subway's Turkey Italiano (because it's only a melt in the most technical sense). It's not much different from their Spicy Italian but I liked the combination of cured meats and veggies with the new vinaigrette.
