-1/4 Pound Swiss Cheese

Put a small amount of the oil from our salad on both sides of the bread (this is considered the Mayonnaise). On the top side of the bread, put a generous amount of Jay’s Muffuletta Salad, on the other half of the bread build your meats and cheese. Place bottom half on top half and cut into fours. Will feed two(2) people generously.
