Preheat broiler and slice baguette into 1-2" slices on a diagonal. Drizzle slices with fruity EVOO and toast under the broiler under lightly golden brown, flip over, then brown the opposite side. Lay out toasted bread on a serving platter.
In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients and pulse until ingredients are chopped to desired texture -?? chunky or pureed. Add fleur de sel and cracked black pepper. Scoop tapenade on baguette slices and serve right away to prevent bread from getting soggy.
Serve baguette slices with a thin wedge of brie or nutty gorgonzola then tapenade for a creamy balance to the tapenade if you’re feeling decadent.
