Olive, Goat Cheese, Pecan Spread

This olive spread is legendary amongst my friends and family. It is not a true "Olive Tapenade," because it's not made with a mixture of different olives or capers. Also, Tapenades are usually not made with cheese. However, if you like olives or Tapenades, you will love this. I have friends who claim they don't like olives, yet they love this spread. Serve with bread, crackers, or crostinis.
