admin's picture
  Chevre 1 Ounce (French Goat Cheese, at room temperature)
  Part skim ricotta cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped chives 1 Tablespoon
  Chopped fresh basil leaves/1/2 teaspoon dried basil 1 Tablespoon, chopped
  Pitted black olives 12 , minced
  Capers 1 Teaspoon, rinsed and drained
  Red wine vinegar 1 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 2 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  French bread 2 Ounce, diagonally cut into 12 equal slices

1) Combine together the cheese, chives and basil in a small mixing bowl. Mix well and keep aside.
2) In a different small bowl, combine together the capers, olives and vinegar. Stir well and set aside.
3) Combine together the oil and garlic in a small non-stick skillet and cook over moderate heat. Keep swirling the oil in the pan occasionally to prevent the garlic from burning. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, till the garlic is golden in color.
4) Remove the skillet from the heat and set it aside.
5) Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet, in a single later.
6) Broil about 5 to 6 inches from the heat source till the slices are golden brown.
7) Once done, turn the bread over and, with the help of a pastry brush, lightly brush each side of the bread with an equal amount of the garlic-oil mixture. Ensure that the entire mixture is used.
8) Over each bread slice, spread an equal amount of the cheese mixture.
9) Broil once again for about a minute or two, till the cheese has melted.
10) With an equal amount of the olive mixture, top each slice of the bread.

11) Serve the bread slices while still warm or cool for a bit and serve at room temperature. Makes a good appetizer as well as snack.
