    Angela Dawn's Note:

    I didn't find any recipes on here that completely tickled my fancy! I used to watch the kitchen staff make the olive dressing and make the sandwiches where I worked on Decatur. We were two blocks from Central Grocery and I knew people who worked in the kitchen there also. SO I would say that this recipe, after looking online and giving credit where it's due to and (to remind me what HAD to go in, and what didn't belong)- I've devised a recipe that's as close as possible to what's the REAL deal! Prep time does not include 2-3 days store time for olive salad.
