      I wasn't sure what to expect, since I've never eaten a muffuletta before, but this was really good! I made the olive salad (plus the anchovy, of course -- love 'em!), and I used big sandwich rolls instead of a whole loaf. Loved all the flavors in this! Thanks for posting! Made for The Hot Pink Panthers for ZWT9

      I enjoyed this sandwich, before it went out of business, at a place called Dominic's in Shreveport, La. It was my favorite sandwich ever!! I would eat there every time I visited the area and was heartbroken when I learned it went out of business. This recipe is so close to the taste that I loved about the restaraunt muffuletta. I didn't add anchovies, only because I forgot to buy them. Next time I will add them. I made extra olive salad to have on hand. Thank you PanNan for posting this delicious recipe!!

      We used ham and hard salami for the meats and made the olive salad following the recipe except we left out that darn fishy thing (personal preference). What an awesome sandwich we had! I used whole wheat sub rolls of course!
