    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Quick and Simple Magazine, February 2006. Use imported fresh olives for best results and canned black olives if you want to forsake quality and flavor.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup imported olive, pitted, sliced
    • 1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
    • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped (*NOT* dried)
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
    • 1 teaspoon orange zest, grated
    • 18 slices French bread (cut 1/2-inch thick)
    • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese, your choice (French feta, boursin, chevre, etc.)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a food processor or blender, combine the olives (save a few for garnish), artichoke hearts, 1/4 cup fresh basil, olive oil, capers, and the orange zest. Pulse mixture until coarsely pureed. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast in the preheated oven until lightly browned on both sides, approximately 10 minutes total.
    4. 4
      Remove the toast from the oven. Divide the tapenade mixture and spread on each slice. Top with the goat cheese of your choice; return to oven and bake 1-2 minutes or just until cheese melts.
    5. 5
      Transfer the toast to a serving platter and garnish with the remaining sliced olives and some fresh basil.

      Delicious! We loved these. I omitted the oil and doubled the artichoke hearts. I liked the orange zest in this, but DH said he would prefer them without it. I could see these both as appetizers and as a meal with a salad. They're great!

      A yummy treat! I scaled down the recipe a bit and used queso fresco for the cheese. Loved it! Thank you Cookgirl! Made for the Photo-French food challenge.
