      This is delicious and very easy to make. There are some steps involved when preparing the olive mixture but I have found that when I make this mixture to double it and it lasts in the fridge. That way we can get 2 or 3 sandwiches out of a batch since we enjoy this sandwich quite often. It is a staple on Superbowl Sunday!

      My husband and I live in Ca but are both from the south and we absolutely LOVE this recipe. I have probably made it 6 times in the last several months. It has a lot of flavor--but it is a must to let flavors soak overnight. You won't find a better recipe than this one!

      I've always enjoyed muffalettas out. This was my first attempt to make one at home. This recipe was used as a base. To make it even easier if you can find Olive Salad (I use Boscolli) usually with the pickled stuff then all you have to do is add the garlic, peppers and herbs. I like mine warm so wrap it in foil and bake at 350f for 30 minutes. The crust will crisp during this. Also I used Genoa salami and Cajun turkey for the meat. If you heat it leave off the lettuce.
