I found this recipe in The Sweet Life in Paris by David Lebovitz. It was the perfect light meal to a long day. I did modify it slightly.
Goat Cheese Toasts
2 slices of hearty bread. I used an artisan multi-grain.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 ounce round goat cheese
1/2 tsp red wine or sherry vinegar
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp Dijon mustard
2 cups Arugula or your preferred greens (stay away from Iceberg lettuce)
Fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup grape tomatoes sliced in half
Walnut halves, toasted (optional)
- Preheat the broiler and set oven rack 4" below heating element.
- Brush bread with just enough olive oil to moisten it. Place goat cheese on bread slice. Broil on baking sheet in the oven until cheese is soft and a little brown on top. Approximately 3 to 5 minutes.
- While toasts are baking make a vinaigrette in a bowl. With a fork, stir the vinegar, olive oil, mustard and a pinch of salt.
- Toss greens, tomato and walnuts in vinaigrette and pile on a plate. Grind fresh pepper over the top.
Enjoy with a glass of wine. I chose a Sauvignon Blanc.
