Ingredients

1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons lemon zest (about 1 lemon)
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (6-ounce) package goat cheese, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
6 ounces gourmet salad greens
1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
1 1/2 cups sliced apples, such as Granny Smith (about 1/2 pound)
6 pieces rosemary flatbread

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450°. Combine breadcrumbs and next 5 ingredients in a shallow pan. Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small dish and brush each goat cheese slice with oil. Dredge each slice in breadcrumb mixture, and place on a baking sheet, leaving 1/2 inch between slices.

2. Bake for 8–10 minutes. Remove from oven. While the cheese is baking, toss greens with vinegar, apple slices, and remaining teaspoon olive oil in a large salad bowl.

3. Transfer to 6 salad plates. Top each plate of salad greens and apples with 2 goat cheese medallions. Serve with flatbread while cheese is warm.
