Ingredients

  • 8 baguette slices
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup soft goat cheese
  • 4 cups torn light green curly endive
Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Arrange baguette slices on baking sheet. Broil one side until golden and crisp, about 30 seconds; let cool. Rub toasted side of each slice with garlic. Spread untoasted side of each slice with goat cheese. (Make-ahead: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.) Broil until cheese is just starting to brown, about 2 minutes.

Dressing: In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Add endive and toss to coat. Divide among plates and top each with 2 croûtes.
