I got the ingredients together and was going to make it myself. Husband came in and said, hey, I will do it. He followed the recipe and it turned out fantastic. There is a small deli here in town and that was our first and only experience with the olive salad in the Muffulia Sandwich. It was as good or even better then the deli. It made alot though, so I put the remaining into 1/2 pint jars and canned in a pressure canner for 10 minutes. Been eating it ever since and it is just fantastic. I let a co-worker try it at work and her eyes rolled and she said I want the recipe. Great...This is definately a keeper.
