6 ounces fresh soft goat cheese
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
10 whole cured green olives pitted -- coarsely chopped
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
--- CROSTINI ---
9 slices good-quality french bread -- (1/2-inch thick)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic

Preparation / Directions:

For the goat cheese rounds, roll the cheese into a 4-inch long log. Slice into 1-inch thick rounds and place in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, garlic, thyme, pepper, olives, and olive oil until well blended. Pour over the goat cheese and marinate, refrigerated, for 2 hours to 1 week. Before serving, let warm to room temperature, about 30 minutes. For the crostini, preheat broiler or grill. Drizzle the bread with olive oil, and grill or broil until golden brown. When the crostini come out of the oven or off the grill, rub them with a bit of the minced garlic. Then cut in half on the diagonal . Serve the warm crostini with the goat cheese.
