Century Grocery on Decatur Street in New Orleans is where it all began. Around 1906, the grocery's founder, a recent Sicilian immigrant named Salvatore Lupo, started making the sandwich (named for a seeded round load of bread common back home) for fellow immigrants who stopped by his store every day to buy ingredients for their unvarying meal: meat, cheese, bread, and olive salad. The rest, as they say, is history. What makes this carved-out and overstuffed loaf so delicious is the garlicky olive salad; it acts as a seasoning and also adds crunch. True aficionados may quibble, but we've made this a little easier to eat by chipping the vegetables fine so they don't go flying at the first bite. The muffuletta can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
