I'm constructing a finger sandwich for a little get together, and I've hit a wall.
My idea is to use soft whole wheat bread, a thin layer of cream cheese, and a tapenade of roasted red bell peppers and walnuts.
But something tells me salt, pepper, and olive oil won't be enough to give the sandwich the kind of "oomph" that's going to make people ask me what my secret is.
What do you think? A little balsamic vinegar? Chopped olives (what kind?)? An herb?
FWIW, the other things being served might be mini lemon cupcakes with swiss meringue frosting, and cardamom shortbread cookies. I thought something savory with an interesting texture and flavor would balance things out.
