Muffuletta Dip – all the flavors of a delicious muffuletta sandwich in a dip! Olives, roasted red bell pepper, pepperoncini, salami, ham, and provolone cheese all tossed together. Serve on crackers or toasted sliced French bread. Perfect for your Mardi Gras party!
I’ve never had a green olive in my life before I made this dip.
On the first day of drama in 10th grade, we had to do that horrifying thing where you stand up and tell everyone your name and then say something interesting about yourself.
So one girl (who I later played a Christmas stocking with in our holiday play) stood up, introduced herself, and said her favorite food was green olives and the entire class said, “Ewwww!”
I’ve avoided green olives ever since.
I love kalamata olives. I can even get into those weird metallic tasting black olives sometimes. Who knows why I let a bunch of 15 year olds keep me from green olives for so long.
What Is Muffuletta Sandwich?
Muffuletta Sandwiches originated in New Orleans, LA. It’s a round loaf of bread with layers of olive salad, salami, ham, and swiss or provolone cheese. Muffuletta sandwiches are typically served cold and in New Orleans, you can buy them as the entire round loaf, half a loaf, or even a quarter. They are a must try when in New Orleans!
How To Make Muffuletta Dip
This Muffuletta Dip is so easy and there is absolutely zero cooking involved!
You simply combine an Italian olive salad (which you can find in the olive section of pretty much any grocery store or on one of those fancy olive bars a lot of stores are doing now), chopped kalamata and gree olives, roasted red bell pepper, pepperoncini, and celery.
And to make it taste like a muffuletta sandwich, it needs salami, ham, and provolone cheese! Add in fresh parsley and toss it all together with olive oil.
You can serve it with crackers or on toasted sliced french bread or you could totally make a sandwich out of it.
