The Muffuletta is an Italian sandwich created in the late 1800's. The sandwich orginated
when Italian merchants working in the markets of New Orleans placed a mixture of
broken green and black olives, found on the bottom of olive barrels, on loaves of round
Italian bread known as "muffs". Over this mixture, they layered slices of ham, salami and
Provolone cheese. The most famous of all Muffuletta sandwiches are found at the
historic central grocery on Decatur street in New Orleans.
