How to make Muffuletta Sandwich recipe
To prepare muffuletta sandwich, a classic recipe from New Orleans, in a pan first warm the reserved pickling liquor, the vinegar, 2 tbsp water, a pinch of sugar and 2 tbsp oil.
Put the peppers, olives, celeriac, carrots and onions in a bowl.
Pour over the hot liquid, season with salt and ground black pepper and leave to cool.
Stir in the oregano and check the seasoning.
Cut the loaf in half horizontally and brush the cut surfaces with a little oil.
Top with the salami slices and then half of the vegetable salad (without liquid).
