In bowl, toss together diced red pepper, minced anchovies, minced garlic, chopped black and green olives, chopped fresh parsley, chopped capers, olive oil and pepper. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Cut rolls in half horizontally; hollow out insides, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick shell. Spread light cream cheese over bottom half of each roll; spoon in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the olive mixture.

Layer smoked salmon on olive mixture; top with remaining olive mixture, mounding slightly. Cover with tops of rolls.
