Founded in 1906 by Salvatore Lupo, a Sicilian immigrant, the store was one of many family owned, neighborhood grocery stores during the early 20th century, when the French Quarter was still predominantly a residential area. It is famous as the home of the New Orleans muffuletta sandwich invented by Salvatore Lupo, to feed the Sicilian truck farmers who sold their produce at the Farmer's Market on Decatur Street in the French Quarter. Central Grocery remains today in the New Orleans French Quarter. A muffuletta (muff-uh-LOT-uh) is a sandwich made with a Sicilian seeded bread commonly known as muffuletta bread. An average muffuletta averages 10 inches in diameter. The inside of the muffuletta contains ham, salami, mortadella and provolone cheese and olive salad. The meats and cheeses in the muffuletta can be found at any local delicatessen; however, what separates most muffuletta sandwiches is the olive salad.

I fell in love with the Olive Spread 20 years ago, and everyone loves it. It turns any sandwich into a great, unique feast. And, it makes a great gift.
Italian Olive Salad

My son had this when we visited and I could not get enough of it! He went to Tulane and it transported me right back to New Orleans when we visited him there. I ordered it the minute we got home. I happened to mention it to my neighbor who wanted to try it, so we had them over for muffalatas and he ate two! This salad is fabulous and I will always have a jar in my refrigerator to make sandwiches and use on salads.

It came in a timely manner and was packaged properly. I knew it would be delicious as I have bought this before. It's a great little piece of heaven from New Orleans up here in CT...

Thanks to this Central Grocery Olive Salad and the Muffaletta Bread we ordered from this site we had authentic Muffaletta sandwiches on Mardi Gras weekend before our parade. They were delish that day and the leftovers were great the next day along with the gumbo and shrimp etouffe! Service was fast and the product was in good shape when it arrived! I will order again!

Review for Central Grocery Olive Salad
Reviewed by Mary Wood From Virginia on 3/24/2014
I recently ordered two quarts of this delicious salad and made muffulettas for my Mardi Gras party. This is the first time I have made these sandwiches. I had a bit of a time finding round italian bread, but finally came upon it at our local Harris Teeter grocery. The salad was wonderful and everyone complemented the sandwiches, saying they were the best sandwiches they had ever had. I made them a couple of hours ahead, but the left overs were so good the next day I think I will make them a day ahead next year and heat them for a while. I will be ordering again. Thank you so much.
