  • 3 each Fresh Garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/8 Cup Celery, thinly sliced

  1. Cut the bread in half length wise.
  2. Brush both sides with the oil from your 1 week old Olive Salad, go a little heavier on the bottom.
  3. Layer half of the Salami on the bottom half of the bread. Then the Mortadella. Then the Mozzarella, then the Capicola, Provolone, and the remainder of Oldani. Top this with the olive salad. Put the lid on and press it down without smashing the bread. Quarter it. You’ve just created pure heaven.
