Would like some tapenade ideas

I really like tapenade, but am having trouble figuring out what to eat it with, other than bread. Would love to hear how you like to have it. Thanks!

  1. I'm assuming your tapenade is a traditional olive tapenade . . .

    spread on sandwiches (a la muffaletta)
    tossed with pasta
    mix with cheese and stuff chicken breasts

    Anything that you'd like with olives you can essentially sub in tapenade . . .

    1. I like it on grilled salmon and in roast beef sandwiches

        over swordfish too.

        over roasted veggies.

          I like it with salmon too. I spread it over the top of raw salmon, skin side down, and bake it.

        1. Thanks! You've given me some good ideas.

          1. I'm always looking for canapes that don't use bread as a base. One of my favorites is grilled or toasted thin slices of polenta (homemade or in the tube), and tapanade is my favorite topping.
