EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

In 1906, the Central Grocery in New Orleans created the muffuletta, a wonderful specialty sandwich. It combines meats and cheeses, but it's the olive salad that makes it unique. Our vegetarian version keeps the olive salad but replaces the meat with a spicy, mashed black-eyed pea mixture.
