Ingredients

Salt

6 ounces goat cheese

1 loaf round focaccia, cut into 1/2-inch slices

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 pound Mesclun greens

1 cup toasted pine nuts

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1 pint tear drop tomatoes

1/4 cup chives, chopped

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3/4 cup sprouts, (recommended: radish)

1/4 cup Sherry vinegar or balsamic vinegar

Chive flowers, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the goat cheese in equal amounts on the foccacia slices. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put the goat cheese croutons on a baking sheet in one layer and put in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has begun to melt and the bread is toasted.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the greens, pine nuts, cheese, tomatoes, chives and sprouts and toss. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and oil and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss. Serve with the goat cheese croutons and garnish with the chive flowers.
