Mmmmmmuffaletta


The other night we made a muffaletta....okay, Jack made it while I watched. He's the sandwich master of the house, afterall. Our muffaletta didn't stray too far from the traditional. Basically, a round Italian loaf of bread layered with, in order from bottom to top, olive salad, Mozzerella cheese, Capicola ham, Mortadella, Provolone cheese, salami and more olive salad.

Speaking of Olive Salad...


Jack's Olive Salad for Muffalettas

1/2 c. Kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 c. Spanish (green) olives, chopped
1/2 c. giardinera (Italian pickled carrot and cauliflower), chopped
1/4 c. pepperconcini, chopped
1/4 c. roasted red pepper, chopped
1 shallot, finely minced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 stalk celery, minced
1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar (or giardinera/pepperconcini pickling liquid)
½ tsp. ground black pepper

Mix all of the ingredients together, taste it for seasoning, let sit for at least half an hour, then make a muffaletta with it!

After assembling the sandwich, we put another plate on top of it and some weight...we used a caraffe of water, but a big can of tomatoes or something would work, also. Let it smush and meld and delish-i-fy for a half hour or so.


Mmmmmm....
