The New York City restaurant Penelope serves a cult-favorite sandwich called the John Oliver: fresh goat cheese and a generous serving of kalamata olive tapenade together on (yes, really) toasted cranberry walnut bread. It’s an uncanny pairing: sweet, nutty, briny, and creamy all at once.
- 2 (1/2″-thick) slices cranberry-walnut bread
- 2 tbsp. goat cheese, softened
- 2 tbsp. kalamata olive tapenade
- Toast the bread until golden and warm. Spread one slice of bread with goat cheese, the other with olive tapenade, and sandwich both pieces together.
