This HOT (spicy) spread is named for the muffaletta sandwich. Invented in Italy, and so popular, it’s a regular tourist attraction there, the olive spread is served in a crusty Italian loaf, tripled-up on meat — capicola, mortadella and salami — and topped off with cheese. Without the olive spread, it’s not a muffaletta sandwich. Can be used in sandwiches but is also great on crostini, crackers and flour tortillas or pita bread points.
