    Dressing and olive salad

    Sandwich

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine the dressing and olive salad ingredients and stir together thoroughly; chill in refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
    2. 2
      Trim the stem off the eggplant and slice lengthwise - slices should be about 1/4" thick and the skin should be left on for easier broiling.
    3. 3
      Arrange slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and brush with half the vinaigrette dressing; broil slices 4 to 5 inches from heat source for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned, then remove from heat and set aside.
    4. 4
      Cut (round) loaf of bread horizontally and pull out some of the soft center to allow room for sandwich filling.
    5. 5
      Drain the olive salad from the dressing, reserving the dressing.
    6. 6
      Put half of the olive salad over the base of the loaf.
    7. 7
      Now create layers of broiled eggplant, half of the cheeses, half of the peppers, half spinach, half tomatoes, half lettuce, and drizzle with a tablespoon of the reserved dressing; repeat all layers, and end with a third layer of eggplant.
    8. 8
      Drizzle the remaining dressing (or as much as you like) with olives on the underside of the loaf "lid" and place on top of sandwich.
    9. 9
      Wrap the entire sandwich tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
    10. 10
      Note: some muffuletta lovers continue with the following directions - my personal preference is to do so, but it's up to you: place the filled loaf on a plate or flat pan; cover with another pan and load several pounds of weight on top (you can use canned goods, a bag of sugar, whatever you have that is heavy); refrigerate for at least 4 hours; this compresses the sandwich, marrying flavors and making it easier to cut and serve; cut into small wedges for serving.
    11. 11
      The flavors are best if the muffuletta is chilled for at least 4 hours and then brought to room temp before cutting and serving.

      This is absolutely amazing. I did make several alterations. I used turkey and cheese instead of eggplant. The result received rave reviews. This dressing is wonderful!
