Food with a funny name: The Muffuletta Sandwich

The muffuletta is a mighty meaty sandwich native to New Orleans. It is traditionally made with a large, round loaf of crusty bread, a variety of cured meats and cheeses (typically capicola, salami, mortadella, emmentaler and provolone) and most importantly olive salad. This salad of course has olives, but also carrots, cauliflower and celery.
