I am from New Orleans and GAWD, do I miss these suckers! Just a tip, make the olive salad ahead of time and let it sit in the frige for a day or two. Ooo La La!!
This is my favorite requested sandwich to make for a party or any get together---I make the olive salad to put on my french bread, pita chips etc----just love it---I use only salami (this is a must) and a good ham---provolone and swiss or any other cheese you like---
What a wonderful picnic this was! We enjoyed the sandwich while watching James Taylor at Chastain Park in Atlanta. A layered salad and oatmeal-cranberry cookies completed a wonderful meal. Thanks! Will make this olive salad often.
I've made this before and it's wonderful! But the traditional way is to make the sandwich a day ahead of time, wrap tightly, and put a heavy weight on it and let chill overnight, then cut into wedges. The sandwich stays together better that way and the flavors meld a little more. YUM!!
