Crostini means "little toasts" and here prepared polenta (comes in a roll in the deli section near the fresh mozzarella cheeses and olive bar, if your grocery is so equipped), is sliced and fried in a little olive oil until toasted. It is topped with a two varieties of olives, tomato, and fresh herbs. I thought this was a tapenade, but come to find out, tapenade gets it's name from capers (which are not used in this recipe).
