For the vinaigrette, whisk together the vinegar and mustard in a small bowl; season with the salt and pepper to taste. Whisk in the olive oil slowly; set aside.

For salad, heat oil in large skillet; add garlic. Cook, stirring until garlic softens, about 1 minute. Stir in the shrimp; cook, stirring until the shrimp is pink and translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chorizo; cook, stirring until warm, about 1 minute.

Toss together the arugula, olives, reserved shrimp and chorizo slices in a large bowl; add half of the vinaigrette. Toss, adding more vinaigrette as desired.

Halve the French loaves lengthwise without cutting all the way through; hollow out some of the soft bread to make room for the salad. Line the hollowed loaves with salad. Close; cut each loaf into 3 pieces.
