Ingredients

6-8 inch round bread loaf (Olive & Cheddar loaf)

8 slices provolone cheese

100g thinly sliced mild genoa salami

100g thinly sliced mortadella

100g thinly sliced capicola

2/3 – 1 cup muffuletta vegetable tapenade

1 cup arugula

Instructions

  1. Slice the bread round in half and hollow out some of the inside, about a half-inch.
  2. Spread each half of the bread with about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the muffaletta vegetable tapenade (the amount spread will depend on the size of the round bread loaf).
  3. Layer the sandwich starting with 4 slices of provolone on the bottom slice. Then layer with the genoa salami, mortadella and capicola and arugula.
  4. Layer the top half with the remaining 4 slices of provolone and then place the halves together.
  5. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Unwrap the sandwich and cut the muffaletta into 6-8 wedges (depending on the size of the bread loaf).
  7. Serve!

 

TIPS

  • If you want to take this sandwich for a picnic, after slicing into wedges, wrap individually in plastic wrap for easy picnic transport.
  • If you can’t find muffaletta vegetable tapenade, giardiniera can be used instead as it is very similar.
  • Like a spicy kick to the sandwich? Opt for spicy genoa salami instead of mild.
