Expert Tips

We like to use English or hot house cucumbers because they have far fewer seeds than the regular cucumbers.

Pitted kalamata olives can be found in jars in the olive section of your grocery stores, as well as in the deli section. They have a sharper, richer flavor than regular canned ripe olives.
