N’Awlins Style Muffuletta Sandwiches
Submitted by Mrs. Kenline

Muffulettas are a favorite in New Orleans and what makes them special is the Italian salad mix you use. Here’s the recipe for the mix and you can make more than you need and store it in the refrigerator. It gets better as it sits, so you’ll want to make it up a day or two ahead of time.

Directions:
Combine the following ingredients in a large mixing bowl:
½ cup finely sliced celery
½ cup cauliflower, finely chopped
½ cup carrots, finely chopped
¼ cup olives w/pimentos, chopped
2 Tbsp pepperoncini, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp EVOO

To make the Muffulettas:

Large Kaiser rolls, sliced
Sliced Genoa Salami
Sliced Ham
Sliced Provolone cheese

Lightly toast the rolls under the broiler. Spread the bottom half of the toasted roll with the salad mix. Place layers of equal amounts of cheese, ham, and salami and top with more of the salad mix. Return to the oven and heat just until the cheese begins to melt.
Carefully remove the bottom half of the sandwich from the oven and top with the other half of the roll. This sandwich is great warm from the oven, or once it has cooled off. Bon Appetit!!

(Cooks Note: You can also make these sandwiches with other deli meat combinations, the salami and ham are the traditional meats used and what we enjoy the most)
