Baton Rouge stop three in Louisiana

Finally day three and four in Baton Rouge.  We will be back in three weeks for the St. Patricks Day parade.  Our reservations are made.

More on this Italian Olive Salad at the end of this post.

I could walk around my sister's yard forever... just enjoy spring in Baton Rouge starting to begin.

Now for this delish salad, the picture below is before I added the tri-color pasta.

Muffuletta Pasta Salad

Six ingredients only
cube hard salami
cube ham
(bought one slice each from Deli, about 1/4 inch slice)
cube provolone cheese
sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese
add one pound of cooked tri-color pasta (important let pasta cool before you mix with cheese)
Finally.. half a 32 oz jar of the Italian Olive Salad, sprinkle more parmesan before serving.
Mix and enjoy warm or cold

In Louisiana I had several brands of this olive salad in a jar to choose from. In Texas ... nothing yet.  So I used one jar of sliced green salad olives and a jar of Marzetti's pickled carrots, cauliflower and pepperchini.  chopped (not the same but worked)

Makes 16-20 servings, great for a crowd.

    Pictures like that make me wonder sometimes why it is that we live in Idaho.

  9. Thank you Lori for your sweet comment. The best thing is to get both, we just went to a cruise for our Anniversary and the dishes he just surprised me with...but he probably liked them, as we didn't have any in blue and white.
