Muffaletta Appetizers or Sandwiches
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Traditionally a New Orleans sandwich using a nice great big round loaf of bread, slicing it in half to stuff it with this olive mixture along with drizzles of olive oil, slices of cheese, and salami or sausages. I like to use individual buns or hearty bread to cut into smaller bites which is great for an appetizer.
2-3 cloves fresh garlic
In food processor with steel chopping blade in place, first drop in the olive cloves while machine is running to get them chopped up nicely. Drain most of the liquid from the olives. Add to the processor along with the red peppers and pulse to chop quite fine, but not to make them mushy. Add oil and salt. Cut rolls in half and spread each side with soft cheese (or mayonnaise). On the bottom half, pile on lots of the olive mixture and then arrange salami, sliced cheese, and baby greens. Top with the other half of bun, and serve as is, or using a serrated bread knife slice into appetizer sized pieces and serve!
