Ok, back to my lunch... So there I was in the grocery store picking up ingredients to make hubby some chicken soup (he's been under the weather of late) and I saw the cans of black olives and thought about those so-called muffalettas, which then made me think of just a sandwich spread for ham sandwiches (which is how I do it). I grabbed a couple of cans (they're small). And then I saw this flat-out bread...
Now for the "spread".... you're gonna just love this... After you plop the chopped olives in a bowl (yes, buy the already chopped kind) you just add mayonnaise and stir it up!
you can season it if you want, but don't add salt - the olives are salty enough!
And now a public service announcement about mayo: Get the good kind. I remember watching a cooking show (a long time ago) and the chef said about mayonnaise "...and use the good kind". I looked and he was using Hellman's. So I've been using that ever since. Of course, in the south, all good girls use Duke's, and that's just as good as Hellman's...really! Growing up I hated mayonnaise and always ate my sandwiches with mustard only...until I had a sandwich made with Hellmans. It was then I realized I just didn't like Kraft! LOL (but don't tell anybody who works for Kraft, ok? I don't want to upset them).
and that's it. Your super-easy black olive sandwich spread for a not-muffaletta sandwich!
Do you have a sandwich spread you and your family like? I'd love to hear about it!
