From the Test Kitchen

Italian-style Muffuletta:

Prepare as above, except omit the olives, parsley, lemon juice, and oregano and omit step 1. Drain a 16-ounce jar of pickled mixed vegetables, reserving the liquid. Chop the vegetables, removing any pepperoncini stems if present. In a medium bowl combine chopped vegetables; 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid; 1/4 cup chopped pimiento-stuffed green olives and/or pitted ripe olives; 1 clove garlic, minced; and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Assemble sandwich as above, spooning the pickled vegetable mixture atop the tomato slices.

My first trip to New Orleans and the visit to the General Grocery that invented the Muffuletta sold me on moving here..not just because of the Muffuletta but it helped. THis recipe sounds just like the Muffuletta I ate sitting on the stool in the General Store. I*n fact its a great place to visit.
