For the salad, they take the muffuletta filling of cured meats and cheeses and stack them into little cubes on top of a romaine-based salad. The ingredient that can’t be left out is olive salad, and the restaurant makes it 4 gallons at a time. They provided a home-sized recipe but noted that you can find olive salad at most grocery stores or order it online from New Orleans mainstays like Central Grocery or Boscoli Foods. They suggest serving this salad with your favorite vinaigrette.
The Po’Boy Shop’s Olive Salad
Look for giardiniera in the pickle section of the grocery store where you may also find Peppadew peppers, which are a little less common. When draining the green olives, reserve the brine for the recipe.
