This dip is a riff on the muffuletta, a popular sandwich created in New Orleans. You can serve this on French bread crostini or with crackers over a block of cream cheese. Try tossing leftovers into a Caesar salad or tuck them into a wrap. If you want to come closer to the flavor of a real muffuletta sandwich, you can mix in some diced ham and mortadella along with the salami, and use a blend of provolone and mozzarella.
1 cup Italian olive salad, drained
1 cup diced salami (about 4 oz.)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped pepperoncini salad peppers

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
