This is an obscure question, but I have faith that the Hounds here will have the answer!
Short version: does the olive salad at Central Grocery, Maspero's or Napoleon House have distilled vinegar in it?
Longer version: I'll be going to New Orleans and am dying to have a vegetarian muffuletta, as hotly debated here:
However - and here's where it gets obscure - I am catastrophically allergic to distilled vinegar. Every single other vinegar - red wine, balsamic, rice, whatever - is fine. It's just distilled vinegar that's a problem. Hence my question.
