This is one of those sandwiches that usually don't get the attention it deserves. Maybe the combination of flavors doesn't totally resonate, or it's just that people either love or hate tapenade, but, for whatever reason, this is a totally underappreciated combination. With spiced carrots and earthy olives, the sandwich pulls together bold Moroccan flavors in one tiny tea sandwich, and the bite-size package is as crave-worthy as it is cute.

Ingredients

Instructions

Pickle The Carrots: Slice the carrots into paper thin slices using a very sharp knife or a mandolinWhisk together sugar, lemon juice, spices, salt, and oil in a large nonreactive bowl until well combined. Toss the carrots with the dressing then marinate, covered and chilled, at least 4 hours.

Tip

Carrots can be marinated up to 2 days in advance.

Assemble The Sandwiches: Slice all the gougeres in half so that they can be used like sandwiches. Spread a spoonful of each ricotta and tapenade on all the sandwiches. Pile a few carrot slices onto each gougeres, close with a toothpick, and serve.
