We found these easy to make up ahead of time and went well at our gathering. They were very good and although we had a couple as leftovers, they kept well until we could finish them for lunch the next day. I could eat the olive salad with a spoon it is so good!
These were a great party idea. Putting the sandwiches together and wrapping them individually took a little time (especially since I doubled the recipe), but it was worth it. They're a nice, fresh-tasting addition to a footbal fest! I got huge compliments on the olive salad.
I am wondering if the people who rated this recipe low because it tasted ho-hum actually used Kalamata olives or just bought a can of regular black olives and thought that would be good enough. It's not the same thing at all. There is a reason the Kalamatas cost more.
Great sandwiches! Made these for a Sunday football gathering for friends... guests couldn't get enough!
