Olive Salad for Muffalettas

Beth Stone Strachan 1

"I created this olive salad recipe after a vacation to New Orleans. Muffaletta sandwiches are fabulously addictive! Sometimes I will assemble the sandwiches and broil them open faced until the meat is crisped and the cheese melted and toasty. Enjoy!"
