This dish was a real pleasure. I love the idea of combining pork with the olive tapenade. I'm not a fan of sun-dried tomatoes, so I used roasted red peppers instead. I used a bit less oil in the tapenade, and feta in place of the parmesan. While I omitted the prosciutto wrapping (watching caloric/fat intake), I still wanted to ensure a moist result. I therefore marinaded the flattened lean pork in a lemon, garlic, small amount of olive oil, and rosemary mixture prior to filling with the tapenade and grilling. The flavors blended well, and were nicely complemented by the green salad (with tomato, cukes, & feta) and tabbouleh I served them with. Thanks for posting!
