Expert Tips

Here's an easy way to toast baguette slices: Heat oven to 425°F. On ungreased cookie sheet, place bread slices. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until very light golden brown.

Chèvre is the French name for goat cheese, which has a distinctive sharp flavor. It comes in a variety of shapes and the texture can vary from moist and creamy to dry and semifirm.

You can replace the kalamata olives with another variety, such as green or a mixed medley.
