Moroccan Carrot, Goat Cheese Sandwiches With Green Olive Tapenad

This is delicious and surprisingly substantial — a bit like an overstuffed deli sandwich, but not nearly as heavy." Start ahead of time as the marinating time is a minimum of 4 hours.

I have purchased a pretty good olive tapenade at the Super Store which saves some time. Any leftover carrot mix also makes a yummy salad.
