This is an easy gourmet starter. I often add some chopped green olives to the olive mixture and a little more balsamic. A fresh, rindless goat's cheese may also be used in place of the cream cheese. Serve with slices of toasted baguette or crackers.

Plantains can only be eaten cooked. Fried plantains are a traditional treat in Latin America and many other parts of the world. Overly ripe plantains work best for this recipe. If you want a savoury experience, serve these with salt. If you want something sweet, serve with sugar and cinnamon.
