I really love this meal, but haven't made it as often I would like because of the time required for the dough. I use mache instead of arugula. I love the texture that the cornmeal gives the flatbread. It's suprisingly hearty.
Goat Cheese and Greens Piadine
A piadina, a thin, chewy flatbread cooked over coals, is an ideal vehicle to showcase fresh produce. Our entree version is baked in the oven and then topped with a salad, juicy stone fruit, nuts, and grassy goat cheese.
