These were a fail...for me. I think the fail was my own fault and if these are flavours you enjoy, I encourage you to try it anyways. They look pretty on a tray all ready to serve up. They are easy to make but look so fancy.
I made the filling the night before. I think my first mistake was adding too many olives. It had an overpowering olive taste and for me...that wasn't good.....my mom liked that though, so that's a personal thing. I used black olives because I didn't have the Kalamatas. I don't know much about olives so maybe the Kalamatas would have had a different flavour? Next time, I would just omit the olives.
I added the dill and oregano...not just one or the other. I chose to use sundried tomatoes instead of red peppers just because I love sundried tomatoes more.
I don't have a mandoline anymore, so I actually used a cheese slicer thing I have. It worked perfectly!! This is maybe where I failed as well. I don't think I let the sliced cucumbers sit on the paper towel long enough because the rolls were very watery when I served them up...liquid everywhere.
So that's that.
