Muffaletta Olive Salad
A simple to prepare “salad” that is complex in it’s flavour profile. Salty, Tangy, Garlicky and fresh, this Muffaletta Olive Salad is a year round favourite with so many uses. You may have heard it called tapenade, or olive spread, maybe Olive Relish? I think it has almost as many names as there are ways to use this delicious, from scratch, Olive Salad.
Delicious Dinner options
It is of course perfect for Muffaletta sandwiches, but once you’ve tasted it, you’re going to want it on everything! Trust me, this recipe is so much more than just another condiment. I highly recommend making a double batch. Store the prepared Olive Salad in the refrigerator for up to 10 o be used in any of these tempting recipes. And if you find yourself eating it right off the spoon, don’t worry, I won’t tell!
- Muffaletta Sandwiches or sliders
- Grilled Chicken & Olive Salad

Meal Prep friendly
You might be wondering why this is a Meal Prep recipe as is really a condiment and not a meal. For me, having Fridge Staples on hand that make meal prep easier, healthier and tastier, count. Prepping Olive Salad takes on a few minutes and requires ingredients I normally have on hand.
Having these Meal Prep fridge staples on hand, also means that if plans change, or life happens, I’ve got a selection of ready made quick meals I can choose from.
This keeps me on track, no eating out, no what’s for dinner struggles, the extra time on Meal Prep day is definitely worth it.
