Featured Vendor – The Pickled Pig
The Pickled Pig specializes in ferments of all sorts from Kimchee to Kraut! But one of the most popular items is the Muffaletta olive mix available in spicy or regular. The Pickled Pig blends a mixture of olives and extra virgin olive oil with their fermented giardiniera (pickled vegetables) to create this diverse spread, topping, or eat-out-of-the-jar snack. And if you like a little heat, try the spicy version with chipotle pepper purée!
Of course, you can create a traditional Muffaletta sandwich – a layered Italian meat and cheese sandwich originating in New Orleans – and finish it with this tasty olive mix. Or you can entertain guests with a charcuterie board filled with cured meats, artisan cheeses and the Muffaletta mix for an easy but delicious starter course. The Pickled Pig likes to add their spicy mix with homemade hummus to add more depth and flavor to this traditional dip. And if you just need to finish off a perfectly grilled or roasted fish or meat, spoon a bit of Muffaletta mix right on top.
