  • 1
    In small bowl, mix salad ingredients. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors.
  • 2
    In blender or food processor, place peas, water and pepper sauce. Cover; blend or process until smooth.
  • 3
    Cut 1/2-inch slice from top of each roll; set aside. Remove soft bread from inside of each roll to within 1/2 inch of edge; reserve bread trimmings for another use.

    Spread about 1/4 cup pea mixture in each roll. Top pea mixture in each with cheese slice, tomato slice and scant 2 tablespoons salad. Spoon remaining pea mixture and salad evenly into each. Cover with tops of rolls.

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.
