This is a simple, versatile tapenade. It is best on warm focaccia or toasted slices of baguette, spread in a very thin layer. It is also terrific on sandwiches. Spread it on the inside of the bread before you make a grilled cheese (best w/cheddar) or a fresh mozzarella and tomato sandwich. It's also a good dip for baby carrots or just about anything else. I've used leftover tapenade as a sauce on pasta, as well. It's very rich and flavorful. This recipe keeps well and is a favorite at parties.
