A traditional muffuletta consists of one muffuletta loaf (almost like focciatia bread), split horizontally. The loaf is then covered with a marinated olive salad (if you don't like olives try it anyway because it really makes the sammy), then layers of capicola, salami, mortadella, emmentaler, and provolone. The sandwich is sometimes heated through to soften the provolone. The size of the muffuletta is enough to feed more than one person, and many stores sell quarter or half-muffulettas. Also, THE place to get it is Central Grocery seeing as how they pretty much invented it.
Thank you for that info. I think I'll try it.
Ah, sweet bejesus, I've been daydreaming about muffalettas all day. I concur with the others -- Central Grocery is the place to get them, but they're served on just about every block.
