If you can’t make it to Central Grocery in New Orleans for their world-renowned muffuletta sandwich, there’s no need to fret. We have been able to concoct a reasonable facsimile right here at home thanks to the fine folks at Boscoli. They make the definitive olive salad, which is a must for the perfect muffuletta. Get some good french bread or some hoagie rolls, add lots of ham and hard salami, a couple slabs of provolone cheese, and top with a generous helping of Boscoli olive salad.
Boscoli olive salad is also a tremendous addition to homemade pasta salad. Give it a try sometime. The olive salad comes in 16 oz, 32 oz, and 128 oz containers. I suggest you think big because this stuff is addictive and crazy delicious. Order some online at www.boscoli.com or ask for it at your local gourmet shop. Some mega-mart grocers carry it, most don’t. Bummer.
