Muffuletta Sandwich







A recipe from the cuisine, allowed in a diet.

Originally, the muffuletta sandwich (named from the bread) sprang up in Sicily, only to cross the ocean later. We show you how to put together your own. Instead of sesame bread, we used a whole wheat one. First, it can be no muffuletta without mortadella, olive oil, and cheese. Pair these with baked veggies, flavor with basil and spice it with salsa.
