How to Make Muffuletta Olive Salad Recipe


  1. Using the flat side of a chopping knife gently crush olives. Don't mash them to bits, you want them cracked and split.
  2. In a medium glass bowl or large jar add all the ingredients up to the olive oil.
  3. Add enough olive oil to just cover. If using a bowl stir well. Cover with plastic wrap. If using a canning jar, which is what I use, put the lid on it and give it a few gentle shake with a few turns to mix well.
  4. Keep on the counter for a few hours so you will remember to give it a stir or a turn.
  5. Place in the fridge overnight. To serve the next day remove from fridge and allow to come to room temperature. (stir, turn the jar...) You can keep this up to a week in your fridge, but it won't last that long.
