I know I broke all the rules with this one. No muffaletta bread, instead it was the sour dough. And I hear it's considered blasphemy to heat the sandwich. But we did, all of them. And the Wednesday lunch crowd went wild! These hearty, delectable sandwiches will be on a very short rotation on our Wednesday lunch menu for sure.
Slices of ham, provolone cheese, salami, mozzarella, and then da bomb, the olive salad! Oh, my.
Why didn't I make this sooner? The briny and flavorful olives melded with roasted peppers and artichoke hearts just did it for me. I'm forever changed and will love this sandwich for rest of my life. The End.

Mock Muffaletta Sandwich & Olive Salad
Makes 4 Hearty Sandwiches
For olive salad, combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl, season with pepper.
Preheat a stove top griddle or a large frying pan to medium heat.
For sandwich, on a slice of sour dough, divide the sandwich ingredients and liberally spread the olive salad. Top it with the second slice of bread. Makes four large sandwiches. Butter the outer layer of the sour dough slices and heat the sandwich through until bread is toasty brown and cheese begin to melt. Slice diagonally in half and serve immediately.
