Heirloom Tomato, Olive Tapenade, and Goat Cheese Sandwich (+Limantour Beach)

Heirloom Tomato, Olive Tapenade, and Goat Cheese Sandwich (+Limantour Beach)

M headed back home for a wedding over the holiday while I continued to work away. However, I took a day off and ran away (with the pup) to the ocean to enjoy a little time with the cool weather and lack of people (strange for the beach, I know- but it is exactly what I needed). I’m discovering so many lovely places in Northern California.

I packed a picnic for myself and over the next couple of post I’ll be sharing the recipes. Today’s recipe is for this gem of a sandwich. I love the saltiness of the olive tapenade with the slight sweetness of the tomato and goat cheese. This sandwich will be a regular in my picnic (and normal day) rotation!

Be sure to check back for the next recipes (two great salad recipes!)
