[salads] Salad with Warm Goat Cheese on Toasted Baguette Recipe

For this salad, I’ve used their Bijou cheese, which is goat cheese that is molded and into small, adorable rounds. The cheese is aged for one week, and the longer it is aged, the shaper and more robust the flavor becomes. I’ve cut each button-shaped round into three thick slices to top on a baguette slice and after a couple of minutes under the broiler, the cheese melts and oozes all over the bread. Try this recipe with any type of cheese you like, even a spoonful of crumbled gorgonzola on each bread slice.

The beautiful purple flower on the cheese is actually the little flower - Regular sweet italian basil will have light green buds and white flowers.

serves 4

4 large handfuls of salad greens
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
8 slices French baguette, 3/4″ thick
8 slices of aged goat cheese, or other cheese, about 1/3″ thick
olive oil

For the basil vinaigrette
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh basil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons champagne vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
1/3 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

To make the dressing, whisk together the basil, mustard, vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Brush each baguette slice with olive oil. Place a goat cheese round or slice on each baguette. Place under broiler until the cheese is soft and a little runny, about 2-3 minutes.

Toss together the salad greens with the tomatoes. Drizzle some of the basil vinaigrette (you may not use all of the vinaigrette) and toss to coat. Serve the salad with 2 pieces of the warm toasted cheese baguette per person.
