Step 1


Preheat the broiler to high. Cut bread into 1 inch thick slices and arrange on the rimmed sheet pan and lightly oil. Place under the broiler for 4 minutes on both sides.

Step 2


While that heats up, cut the goat cheese into slices about ¼ inch thick. Season with olive oil on both sides, being careful to gently flip them so they do not break. Finely chop half of the pistachios and press into the top of the sliced goat cheese.

Step 3


Once the olive bread has toasted, remove from oven. Run the cloves of raw garlic along the toast to impart a fresh garlic flavor. Its almost like using the toast as a grater. Set aside.

Step 4


Get your salad prepped, by finely dicing the shallot. Place into your salad bowl and cover with olive oil. Add the greens to the salad bowl, toss to combine and season with salt and pepper. Add the remaining pistachios and dried cranberries on top. Set aside.

Step 5


Once the pan has cooled to the touch (or using a new one) arrange the seasoned goat cheese on the pan with a few inches in between. Place under the hot broiler and cook for 1 minute on one side only. You want it to be softened and warm, but not completely melted.

Step 6


While the cheese warms, add the vinegar to the salad and toss to combine. Plate by adding half of the seasoned greens to a plate. Add a slice or two of the olive bread next to it. Once the cheese has started to melt and become soft, remove from oven. Using a spatula, place a few rounds right on top of the greens, and dinner is served.
