directions

  • FOR THE TAPENADE ~ Mix first 7 tapenade ingredients together, then check seasoning. It shouldn't need too much. Allow to marinate overnight, if possible.
  • FOR THE BASES ~ broil both sides of bread until lightly brown.
  • Brush one side with oil & then rub with a cut clove of garlic. Set aside until ready to serve.
  • Spread bread slices with cheese, roughing it up with a fork, then spoon tapenade on top, & serve.

    I did not have the right kind of bread handy, but really wanted to make this. So I made up the tapenade, using kalamata olives and using some ground green peppercorns, as I did not have the brined ones. I made some pasta, threw in some goat cheese and the tapenade, and then some basil leaves. Really nice. I did not put the basil into the tapenade, I will add it just before serving. Oh, my sun-dried tomatoes are not in oil, and I think they worked just fine.

    Totally delicious! Scaled back for three and greatly enjoyed as an appetiser for today's lunch with friends. I used kalamata olives - basically the olives I use all the time - but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, and wouldn't want to change a thing. Thanks! Made for PRMR.

    Made as a *pressie* for the Dec Aussie/NZ Dec Recipe Swap & to create an appy plate for a lite supper last nite, I made the tapenade as written but slightly altered the prep of the bases. I toasted them & rubbed them w/a fresh garlic clove as directed, but then spread them w/Recipe #338814 by Diana #2 which eliminated the olive oil. *Yum* ! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. We loved it! :-)

    Perfect appy! I did sub kalamata olives as a personal preference and used a hot pepper infused olive oil. I expected this be good, but it really exceeded all expectations.
