These terrific Mediterranean-inspired crostinis will be a hit as an appetizer or snack at your next get together.
1 (12-oz) jar roasted red peppers, drained
1 (9.5-oz) jar pitted kalamata olives, drained
1 (5.75-oz) jar pimento-stuffed olives, drained
2 cloves garlic, or more to taste
Red pepper flakes, to taste
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ - ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 package prepared crostini (about 24) or 24 baguette slices
1 (6.5-oz) jar pesto
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
1. Add the red peppers, kalamata and pimento-stuffed olives, garlic, red pepper flakes and some salt and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times, adding enough olive oil to loosen the mixture to a loose paste. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more garlic or red pepper flakes if desired.
2. Spread the crostini with a bit of pesto and spoon on a big dollop of the tapenade. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
