Country of Origin: USA
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Main Ingredient: Bread
Additional Features:

SIMPLE & STRAIGHTFORWARD

  • 1 loaf crusty french bread or sourdough
  • 6 oz. goat cheese, herbed if preferred
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, yellow and red
  • ~1 cup mixed greens (watercress, arugula), a premade mix from the grocery store will work fine
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half, tossing in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Use a prepared baking sheet – this will get sticky, so if you have a sillicone baking mat or foil, that would be best. Spread tomatoes evenly across, and roast until tomatoes have softened, about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Remove tomatoes and set aside, allowing them to cool.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat your grill. If you don’t have one, simply turn your broiler on low.
  6. Slice bread into about 1/2 inch thick pieces, cutting in half if you are using a wider loaf. Depending on the size of the loaf, you’ll likely need only 1/2.
  7. Brush the bread with olive oil on each side. Throw onto grill on medium high, browning each side evenly for 3-5 minutes. Avoid burning!
  8. Spread the goat cheese in an even layer on to the bread.
  9. Next, toss tomatoes on each slice so most of the bread. Top with the greens.
  10. Lastly, drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over the top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately.
