The muffuletta sandwich originated at the Central Grocery in New Orleans. According to the founder’s daughter, her father sold salami, ham, cheese, olive salad, and Italian loaves to farmers, who then proceeded to eat these while balancing trays on their knees and sitting on crates. The Central Grocery founder suggested splitting the bread and putting everything inside it. And so, the muffuletta sandwich was born.
