DIRECTIONS

  • Take one loaf fresh Italian bread (one big round for a traditional Muffaletta or individual sub loaves will do fine for smaller sandwiches).
  • Cut the loaf (or loaves) in half, and scoop out a little of the inside to make some room.
  • Make the olive salad by combining the olives and roasted pepper, garlic and vinegar.
  • Drizzle some of the olive oil and juice from the olive salad on each side of the open loaf-- use plenty.
  • On the bottom, place some salami, olive salad, provolone, mild cheese, and mortadella.
  • Top with the other half loaf.
  • Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and set a heavy skillet on top of loaf or individual loaves.
  • Chill for 1 hour.
  • This helps compress for easier slicing and absorption of flavors.
  • Slice into wedges (or eat the individual loaves).
  • *The roasted red peppers are Italian-style, available at many Italian delis or in the ethnic aisle in the grocery store.
