Marguerite over at Cajun Delights posts some of the best food I’ve ever seen (and tasted). Everything she makes always looks soooo good! Her muffaletta pasta salad is no exception! I’m a huge fan of muffaletta sandwiches, so I knew already that I’d be a fan of this salad. All the great tastes of the classic sandwich, but it a bowl! Heck yeah, sign me up!

I recently bought a big jar of Boscoli olive salad. I usually make my own olive salad, but everyone raves about Boscoli, so I thought I’d try it. It’s perfect for this pasta salad, and it’s a lot quicker than making your own olive salad. And by-the-way, Boscoli also makes a great dirty martini olive juice!

The Perfect Bowl Of Happiness

Pair this muffaletta pasta salad with a muffaletta flatbread pizza and you’ve got yourself a meal! And for a slight twist, use a roasted red bell pepper instead. It doesn’t change up the flavors in a huge way. But you’ll notice the difference.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
