Heat oven to 350ºF with rack in middle. Spoon out 2 cups California Hot Mix Vegetables. Pour 3 tablespoons liquid from the jar in a medium bowl and whisk in the sugar. Combine Hot Mix Vegetables with the marinade, stir and let sit for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat baguette on rack in oven until crusty, about 5 minutes. Cut off and discard round ends, then split baguette.

Mix together Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fish sauce, and soy sauce and brush on cut sides of bread. Drain the marinated vegetables. In a separate bowl, dice the pepper strips, add to the mayonnaise and stir.

To assemble the sandwich, spread a layer of the mayonnaise mixture on to the bottom of the bread, top the sandwich bottom with Garlic Stuffed Olives, sliced onion, and cilantro. Arrange the chicken, marinated vegetables and lettuce on top. Cut the sandwich crosswise into fourths.
