6 ounces feta cheese
1/2 teaspoons black pepper
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 focaccia (9 by 13 inch sheet)
Garlic flavored olive oil

Combine feta cheese, pepper and butter in a small bowl: mix and blend with a fork until smooth. Set aside. Divide focaccia into 6 equal portions. Slice each piece horizontally. Brush cut sides of each piece with garlic-flavored oil; arrange cut side up on a cookie sheet. Broil until golden brown. Spread cut sides of bottom slices with 2 tablespoons of cheese mixture each. Arrange fig slices on top and then layer with salami and baby spinach leaves. Garnish tops of sandwiches with parsley springs and decorative toothpicks.
