This salad is traditional as part of a Muffaletta sandwich, but try these other ideas for this flavorful concoction. Combine with cream cheese and use as a spread for crackers. Use it on a turkey, ham or other simple luncheon meat and turn those into a wonderful, sloppy, drippy sandwich sensation. For something totally different, with a lot of flavor, toss with lightly cooked vegetables
