The muffletta bread is about a foot across, topped with sesame seeds - again, pretty disappointing bread, but useful as a sponge to sop up the oil from the salad...
although not enough to stop it from dripping off your elbow as you bite in! You can buy quarters, halves or wholes, but hard not to want the whole thing.
We had some fried pork rinds as a snack, and topped it all with a frozen daiquiri as we made our way out to the Gulf Coast.
Before we left New Orleans, I went back to Central Grocery to buy a quart bottle of their olive salad to take home.
We added red onions to our mufflettas, and used real bread - a fennel whole grain baguette from Art-is-In Bakery - with that olive salad?
YEAH YOU RITE!
