Muffuletta Grilled Cheese

We made these a long time ago and I am just recovering the recipe off my computer. I had done a search for Giardinieria since we had made it from our garden. Of course I found a new blog, Lemons for Lulu, to follow.
From the briny taste of olives to the warm comforting cheese,  grilled cheese will never be the same again!

    4 slices sourdough bread
    6 slices provolone cheese
    2 teaspoons butter
    2 tablespoons green olives, chopped
    2 tablespoons black olives, chopped
    2 tablespoons red bell pepper, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons giardiniera, chopped

1. In a small bowl combine green olives, black olives, red bell peppers, garlic and giardinara. Set aside.
2. Heat a skillet over medium heat.
3. Butter one side of each slice of bread.
4. Lay two slices of bread, buttered side down in the skillet.
5. Place one and half slices of provolone cheese on each piece of bread.
6. Divide half of olive salad and place over cheese.
7. Place remaining slices of cheese over olive salad, top with remaining bread slices, buttered side up. 8. Toast sandwich for 3 - 4 minutes per side or until golden.
