You'll get much more flavor if you actually mix the olive salad together with the herbs and let it marinate in the fridge prior to making the sandwich. Also, a muffaletta is served on sourdough.

This sandwich is also delicious if you chop up giardiniera (pickled vegetables) and add in with the olives as the spread. This gives it a bit of kick. YUM!

this is my favorite sandwich after eating it, i love it..

I'm no muffuletta expert and frankly I don't care if this is authentic or not! This is a great sandwich!! I scaled this down to two servings for Hubs and me. I combined the parmesan, basil, o...
