Our cooking club theme this month was Mardi Gras, and we had quite the feast! Our party was scheduled just ahead of actual Mardi Gras, which gives me time to share the recipes with you. The table was colorful, and filled with gumbo, Mardi Gras slaw, and muffuletta of course.
My friend Susan made this muffaletta sandwich which was awesome. First, you make an olive salad with black and green olives, peppers, celery, onion, and capers in a vinaigrette. Then, you assemble the sandwich with salami, ham, capicola, Provolone, and the olive salad.
I never would have made this on my own, or ordered it off a menu, mostly because I am not a fan of olives or peppers. But somehow when the sandwich was all together, it tasted great. That’s one of the things I like best about our cooking club, it pushes me to try new things sometimes, and usually I end up really liking them.
