I found a great improvement in the taste by using the kalamata olives in place of the black olives (Mezzetta brand has a pitted version so you don't have to deal with pitting them; I'm sure there are others). I also used marinated veggies (bottled giardiniera) in place of artichoke hearts personal preference. I had to look up a muffaletta sandwich online to complete this sandwich. The basic version contains lettuce and tomato ham and salami provolone and of course this olive salad. It's fabulous!
Thank you for submitting this recipe! I've been a lover of olive salad for years and never thought i could make it taste right at home but it's just like at the restaurant! I halved the oil and vinegar and its perfect for me. Thanks again!
Excellent salad especially for one of my favorite sandwiches! I used half kalamata and half black olives in addition to the green olives. I also added some chopped roasted sweet red pepper for color and flavor and fresh pressed garlic instead of the dried. I've been looking for something like this ever since my friend brought home a jarred olive salad she bought in New Orleans and this is even better! Thanks!
Fantastic! I've been looking for a good olive salad recipe ever since we discovered muffalettas in N'Awlins four years ago this is the closest I've tasted. It's great in almost any meat or meat and cheese sandwich thanks!
This is more delicious if you let it sit overnight in the fridge so the flavors can blend. Don't cut the oil in half! per other reviewers unless you're using this as a dip for crackers...the flavored oil soaks into the bread and helps to flavor the whole sandwich. Really good with mortadella ham dry salami and even turkey and provolone cheese. I used emeril's muffaletta recipe for the meats and I like to serve this at DH's poker games; never any leftovers!
YUM! The original cookbook recipe I had called for an olive salad (black&green olives and celery... heavy on the vinegar) in the sandwich. This was a FAR better addition! Even though I didn't have artichokes on hand it was wonderful; though I can't wait to try this the "right" way. Also I used white wine vinegar instead and it was good. A splendid salad fixing! Thanks!
