Greens and Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Almost a salad on a thick slice of toast, this bruschetta is a lovely way to start an elegant meal. It works as an accompaniment to a hearty main dish soup. Prepare right before serving so the greens donít wilt.

Servings: 4
Yield: 4 slices


  • 1 cup (75g) arugula, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (75g) escarole, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (75g) endive, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbs (30mL) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs (15mL) balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices Italian bread, preferably a coarse, country style bread, cut in thick slices
  • 3 oz (85g) Montrachet cheese (or any good quality goat cheese)


Place the greens and the oil and vinegar in a small bowl and toss well. Add salt and pepper to taste, keeping in mind that the goat cheese can be very salty.

Toast bread by grilling on the stovetop or under the broiler.

Spread goat cheese evenly over the toasts. Place a mound of the dressed greens on top of the cheese. The amount of greens may vary, depending on the size of the bread. Itís okay to mound the greens.

Serve immediately.
