Super Easy,Extremely Tasty and Gluten Free to boot!

I must admit I just eyeballed the ingredients as I was putting together the Tapenade but it came out beautifully. It was one of the biggest hits at a Bacheloertte Party party I hosted. So glad I found this one when I was looking for a gluten-free crostini type appetizer.

Fast,Great Flavor Combo, Gluten Free
Great basic recipe, but a tad on the dry side.

I made this as a side dish with marinated salmon tonight (I served 3 whole 1/2" pieces for each person). The polenta was great, but the sun-dried tomato topping was a bit on the dry side (albeit very flavorful & absolutely delicious). I omitted the capers and added 4 large leaves of fresh basil, about 1 tsp. of fresh oregano, a tad of salt & a generous amount of freshly ground pepper. The result was wonderful! Healthy, low-cal, low fat (but high in good fats!), low sodium, low cholesterol but best of all high on flavor! Really wonderful. I think next time I'll throw in a slice or two of seeded chopped fresh tomato & a splash of white wine. My hubby raved over this!

Extremely easy, delicious, healthy

I forgot to add that I cut

I forgot to add that I cut the recipe in half for the two of us...I added a teaspoon of good Chardonnay and 3 tsp (1 Tbsp) of good olive oil and 1-1/4" slice of Roma tomato...These changes definately helped the dryness!! It's FABULOUS now!!
