    gumboboy's Note:

    A delicious, grilled version of the classic New Orleans sandwich. If you can't find prepared olive salad then try to use a chunky style olive tapenade.

      Definitely a great sandwich & very adaptive to changes. I used a chunkier version of Green Olivida Crostini for the olive salad and sliced turkey. We'll make these again!

      I reside in the land of Katrina blight, Mardi Gras revelers and great food culture. Though never a dull moment, I don't know what would make me cry more...eating massive amounts of muffulettas or never having it in my life again. Made for Best of 2010.
