Ingredients

FOR THE TAPENADE

  • 1 cup Black Olives, pitted and halved
  • 1 cup Green Olives, pitted and halved
  • 1 cup marinated artichokes, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 basil leaves, roughly chopped

FOR THE CHEESE SPREAD

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces herbed goat cheese

FOR THE CROSTINI

  • 1 baguette, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Course ground salt

Instructions

  • FOR THE TAPENADE: place all the ingredients for the tapenade in the bowl of a large food processor. Attach the lid and pulse a few times before removing the lid and scraping the sides of the bowl. Repeat until all ingredients are finely chopped. Scoop into a large bowl and serve immediately or refrigerate in a sealed container until ready to eat.
  • FOR THE CHEESE SPREAD: In a medium bowl mix together the cream cheese with the herbed goat cheese until fully combined (*this will be a little easier if cheeses are at room temperature).
  • FOR THE CROSTINI: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange baguette slices on a large baking sheet in an even layer. Using a pastry brush, brush both sides with oil and season with salt. Bake until golden, approximately 6-10 minutes.
  • Top each crostini with a thin layer of cheese spread and lemony olive tapenade.
