If you can't go to Central Grocery,to get a Muffuletta, you should at least order their Olive Salad! anything else is just a copy!
My favorite olive salad Review by Chad (Posted on 7/23/2014)
Product
I order the Central Grocery olive salad a couple of times a year along with the Cartozzo's muffaletta bread and go on a muffaletta binge. I've tried other olive salads for my muffalettas but keep coming back to the Central Grocery formulation. It's the classic.

There's no better olive salad out there than this one! I keep coming back to it after trying others and even making my own. Still the best!

I was glad to find someone who would ship this. CG olive salad is the best! My local deli makes a muffeletta which is a sorry substitute. To me a CG muff, an Abita beer and listening to Dixieland jazz at Jackson Square is a little piece of heaven!

Don't bother looking for another olive salad. Central Grocery olive salad is simply the best. And, if you can't get to New Orleans, NolaCajun is the best place to get it!
Central Grocery Olive Salad Review by Maria (Posted on 7/23/2014)
Product
I've had this product countless times. I'm from the area so I know what I'm getting when I order it. As usual, I was able to impress these "northerners" up here with real food. No other olive salad compares with this splendid combination of spices and veggies. Always, (A Good Southerner)
Wonderful!! Review by JT (Posted on 7/23/2014)

This product is the bomb! Delicious! So worth every penny. First had it from my nephew's Snowball Cafe in Atlanta, GA and when returning to Illinois brought some with but had run out. So I ordered a jar from you for myself and also one for my mom who adores this stuff. I'm sure I will be back for more.
Best ever! Review by Diana Diaz (Posted on 7/23/2014)

When visiting NOLA, we always plan a stop at Central Grocery for an authentic Muffuletta. The olive salad is beyond delicious - often copied but never close to duplicated anywhere. We ordered some jars for birthday gifts and to recreate our own muffulettas at parties. Your olive salad is an unbeatable crowd pleaser. Offering such a tasty treat to others makes us look good! Thank you!!

The only olive salad we will buy. It is a staple in our house, and we are glad that we can enjoy comforts from home all the way up here in Michigan!

I bought it for my first Mardi gras party to make muffuletta sandwiches, it was fresh and had an amazing taste, my company absolutely lived it. I am going to buy it for future sandwiches.
Review for Central Grocery Olive Salad Review by Mary Wood (Posted on 7/23/2014)
Product
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.

I buy 2 kinds of Olive Salad but I love this one. It's just that it brings me back to NOLA every time I eat it. Had a Superbowl party and had homemade muffulettas, truly was a hit.
The Best of the Best from New Orleans Review by Don Culvet (Posted on 7/23/2014)
Product
This is one of the greatest products on the market if you like this type of salad. I grind it in the processor and use it as a spread whenever I make Italian food. It has a very unique flavor. I have tried many different brands but this is the very best. If you go to NO stop by the store and enjoy. Central Grocery doesn't ship so it is very expensive to have it shipped by this third party.

Made our sandwiches let the salad soak into the bread OH MAN! Is this stuff GOOD!

I ordered this for my son-in-law for a Christmas present, he is loving it. My daughter has to hide it in the refrigerator where he will not eat it all day ... I will be ordering some for myself soon.

NOLA Cajun offered me exactly what I was looking for. No minimum order for one of my favorite items to send to my dad...he absolutely loves this olive salad, ever since he tried his first muffuletta when visiting me during my college years at Tulane. The staff at NOLA CAJUN were very accommodating when I needed to have my shipment delayed after ordering on-line. Very pleased with them and will use them again for my next order!

The only authentic muffuletta olive salad! Review by Shireen (Posted on 7/22/2014)
Product
Truer words have never been written! 2 things make a great muffuletta sandwich: the bread and the olive salad ..it s easier to get a good Italian bread but only central grocery makes THE BEST olive salad!! With the current airplane security issues it can be quite difficult bring home jars of olive salad..in fact it's easier to bring on a muffuletta sandwich!! But everyone knows that sandwich won't last the trip!it s better to order some bottles to be sent to your home.the three bottles I purchased arrived in perfect condition.

Glad i could get this product, since i visited N.O.. Two jars came well packaged. Thanks,
Mmmmmm muffulettas! Review by grazillda (Posted on 7/22/2014)
Product
My husband loves this stuff, but we live far from NOLA and don't have access to olive salad in our local store. It's great to get some with a click of a mouse, isn't it?

Except... in spite of careful packing and reasonable shipping options, it leaked. Not a huge amount, just enough so that opening up the box left small drips on the carpet and the distinct odor of olives in the air.

Not a deal-breaker, for sure, but my next order I'm opening the shipping carton over the sink just in case.

Central Grocery Olive Salad is the best. I make a point of stopping by Central Grocery In New Orleans every time that I'm in town. It is great with salads, muffaletta and much more.
Great Olive Salad Review by Norma J (Posted on 7/22/2014)
Product
Whenever we visited N.O., we always stopped at the Central Grocery Store for a muffulatta. Always brought back a couple of jars of the olive salad. Was so pleased when I saw that Nola Cajun had that very same olive salad. I now buy 3-4 jars at a time along with some of the muffulata bread. It is shipped quickly and carefully. We love it on, yes, the sandwiches, but also on salads, hot dogs and anything else that strikes our fancy. It's a little pricey, but well worth it and lasts quite a long time.
The Original Review by Mauitrash (Posted on 7/22/2014)
Product
Central Grocery created the muffeletta so why would you want to use any imitation olive salads. You put some out on your chopping board & chop finer for muffelettas so that jar goes a long way. Never throw out the olive oil, scrape your board after chopping & spread onto your bread. Delicious!
Tasty! Review by NJ Girl (Posted on 7/22/2014)
Product
This olive salad arrived in perfect condition, but we found the full olives too large to spoon out from the jar and put on our muffaletta. We had to take some time to cut up the salad before we could use it on our sandwiches. It was very tasty, though!
Huge hit Review by Marge (Posted on 7/22/2014)

My husband loves this. I got it for him for Christmas. He was thrilled, excited and said it was the best gift ever. Needless to say Central Grocery Olive Salad was a huge hit on Christmas.

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.
