Muffuletta Sandwiches

Category: Lunch/Snacks, United States, Sandwiches

 Ingredients List

  • For the olive salad:
  • 1 cups mixed olives and roasted peppers or pimientos
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated through a microplane
  • For the sandwiches:
  • 2 soft kaiser rolls or a one-pound loaf of focaccia
  • 4 ounces salami or a combination of salami and mortadella
  • 2 (1-ounce) slices provolone cheese


1. To make the olive salad, combine the olives, olive oil and garlic in a food processor and pulse the motor on and off until the mixture is roughly chopped. Do not over process the mixture; the olives should not become a purée.

2. Split the rolls or the focaccia in half and distribute the olive salad over one side of the bread. Layer the meat and cheese on top of the olive spread and top with the other half of the bread. The sandwich may be eaten at once, or better still, wrapped in paper and held at room temperature for half an hour or so to allow the oil to soak into the bread and the ingredients to come up to room temperature.
