Remember that Olive Salad?

Do you remember the olive salad that was a gift from my niece in New Orleans?  Nancy asked what we would do with it…  MAKE MUFFULETTAS! 

If you want the traditional sandwich you need ham, mortadella (bologna), hard salami, provolone and mozzarella cheeses, and French bread or round muffuletta bread. 

Go HERE for the traditional recipe

I used what I had for our lunch yesterday… left-over seeded hamburger buns, cheddar cheese, smoked turkey sandwich meat, and one slice of chopped, cooked bacon leftover from breakfast. 


Place the meat and cheese on the bun and toast in the oven until the cheese is melted and the meat is warm.


Drain the oil from the olive salad and pile it on!  We like lots of it.  This makes a yummy sandwich.  We don’t do these very often because they are loaded with salt and fat, so we really enjoy them when we decide to splurge.

    I saw the olive salad in the Vermont Country Store catalog. I just might order a jar.
