From the Test KitchenItalian-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.
