"Way down yonder in New Orleans
In the land of dreamy scenes
There's a garden of Eden
You know what I mean."
OK, this is over the top as far as sodium is concerned.
It is, however, a LOT lower in sodium than most muffaletta sandwiches that you would get in a New Orleans Po' Boy shop - two thirds less. Every now and then you do have to splurge and if it is the flavor of muffaletta that you are craving, this is a great salad and a good alternative to the much higher calorie, higher sodium sandwich.
Make sure that your salad greens are dry, dry, dry before tossing the dressing with the them. If they are damp the dressing won’t stick as well and you will have to use more. Usually 2 tablespoons of a well made dressing (one that is well emulsified) is enough if the greens are dry. A salad spinner is the key to drying lettuce and a must have in any kitchen.
