Chef notes

We love this modern take on a muffuletta sandwich. Traditionally, the sandwich is served with sliced meats on a wedge of sesame bread. This version takes the viral chopped Italian sandwich and uses muffuletta ingredients. Rich meats with a tangy dressing of olive and giardiniera pair perfectly with the crunch of a demi baguette.

  • 4 leaves crunchy romaine
  • 2 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 thin slices salami
  • 4 thin slices ham
  • 2 slices mortadella
  • 1/2 cup chopped muffuletta olive salad (jar)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 demi baguette



Preheat oven to 350 F.


On a clean cutting board, place romaine on the bottom, followed by provolone, salami, ham and mortadella.


Using a chef's knife, chop all of the ingredients for about 1 minute, until they are uniformly small-diced.


Place the chopped ingredients in a bowl and add the olive salad and mayonnaise. Mix thoroughly.


Warm the bread in a 350 F oven until the outside is crunchy and the inside is soft and warm. Cut one side open to create a pocket.


Fill with the chopped muffuletta mixture and place the sandwich on the parchment paper. Wrap tightly and cut in half.
