Tapenade Crostini Tapenade Crostini

Author: Canadian Living

While this zesty olive hors d'oeuvre is delicious on its own, it's even better when the crostini is spread with a bit of goat cheese before it's topped with tapenade.

Slice baguette diagonally 1/2-inch thick (2 cm) to make 24 pieces; brush both sides with half of the oil. Broil on baking sheet, turning once, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

In food processor or by hand, coarsely chop together olives, remaining oil, anchovy paste, shallot, garlic, capers and pepper. Stir in parsley. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Top each crostini with scant 1 tbsp (15 mL) tapenade.
