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.
