I can only put 3 stars because I ordered the olive salad from the Central Grocery. One thing that is left out from this recipe is the capers - I would suggest adding at least 2T for the amount of salad that this makes. Also, the Central Grocery version has lots of dried spices in the mix, I'm thinking basil & oregeno for sure (the ingredients just list "herbs and spices). I don't have the ingredients in front of me, but I'm pretty sure there is some vinegar in the mix also. When I made the sandwich and wrapped it, it still leaked out of the wrap - it is very messy with the oil dripping out of it. If I do it again, I'm going to try to drain the salad more. Oops, almost forgot, the salad has black olives in it too!
This may be a good Muffuletta, but it doesn't have mortadella, therefore it is not Central Grocery's recipe.
This is a great recipe. Great for tailgating as everything is already put together.
