I love soft and tasty naan so much because it is easy to bite into any fun fillings you want in it....this sandwich is inspired by the big ol Muffalettas in New Orleans...I like all the traditional meats with the cheeses and olive salad but my vegetarian friends get a special one with three different cheeses of your choice with the olive salad so we can all play like we are at Mardi Gras together !
