1/4 cup chopped, pitted imported black or brown olives
1/4 cup chopped basil
1 large clove garlic, chopped
6 tablespoons olive oil

4-6 ounces soft goat cheese or feta cheese

 Mix the beans, tomatoes, olives, basil, garlic and 4 tablespoons olive oil in a bowl. Slice the bread into 1/2" thick slices. Brush lightly with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil.
