Green Olive and Walnut Crostini

Yield MAKES 16 CROSTINI
This chunky, nutty green-olive topping was inspired by tapenade, the Provençal black-olive spread.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces (2 ounces)
  • 1/4 pound Picholine or other green olives, pitted and finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 baguette, sliced 1/2 inch thick and toasted
  • 3/4 cup soft goat cheese (6 ounces)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the walnuts in a pie plate and bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool, then finely chop.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix the olives, walnuts, olive oil, anchovies and garlic.

  3. Spread each slice of toasted baguette with 2 teaspoons of the goat cheese and top with 1 tablespoon of the olive mixture. Arrange the crostini on a platter and serve.
