2 ¼ teaspoons rosemary leaves
freshly minced
4 ounces goat (chevre) cheese
1 small log, cut into 6 equal rounds
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
2 small garlic cloves
freshly minced or pressed, or 1 medium
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
red or white
cup black olives
up to 1/2 cup, oil-cured, pitted and finely chopped
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
8 cups arugula (roquette)
baby arugula, loosely packed, 4 large bunches
3 cups radicchio

Positon the rack to the center of the oven, then preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃).

Add the bread crumbs and 1 teaspoon each of the thyme and rosemary to a shallow plate, and toss until evenly mixed.

Brush 2 tablespoons of olive oil all over the goat cheese rounds and gently press both sides and edges into the bread crumb mixture to coat evenly with bread crumb mixture (This step can be finished up to 1 hour before serving and chilled on a baking sheet in the fridge until ready to bake).

Add the garlic, vinegar, olives, remaining thyme and rosemary, salt, and black pepper to taste into a small bowl, and whisk until well blended.

Slowly pour in 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil and whisk until well mixed, set aside.

Just before serving, bake the prepared goat cheese rounds in the preheated oven until warmed up and a few brown spots appear, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir the vinaigrette again, in a large bowl toss the arugula and radicchio with the vinaigrette until evenly coated.

Divide the mixed greens among 6 serving plates.

Place one warm goat cheese round on top of each salad.

Serve and enjoy.

Light and tasty. Warm goat cheese round gave the creamy flavor and smooth texture into the salad. It was quick and easy to prepare, the ingredients in the vinaigrette were just the right amount, which made the salad very tasty. It is a great side dish along with almost all the main courses.
