"'Tartine' is the French word for a slice of bread with a topping. Spread herbed goat cheese on crusty bread and toss together beets, avocadoes and greens for an usual, beautiful meal that combines warm with cool, bitter with sweet, and creamy with crisp."

  1. Preheat broiler for high heat. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Mix the goat cheese with the basil in a bowl. Spread cheese mixture evenly on four slices of bread. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Cook under preheated broiler until cheese has begun to turn golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  4. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together the mustard and vinegar in a small bowl until blended; season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly pour in olive oil while continually whisking until dressing is smooth.
  5. Place diced beets and mixed greens into a large bowl. Drizzle vinaigrette over top; toss to coat. Divide salad onto four chilled plates. Top with avocado and hazelnuts. Serve with goat-cheese tartines.

This is a 3+ - quite edible, but for all the work just not worth the effort. The bruschetta topping that Trader Joe's sells is better - factor in your time and it's cheaper.

I left out the tartine and just made the salad, which was very flavorful. I used raw, grated beets; otherwise I followed the salad recipe exactly. The avocados and beets went well together, and ...

Couldn't ask for a finer salad. Elegant and delicious. Impressive presentation. I used fresh basil for the crostinis, raised the ratio of olive oil to vinegar to the 3:1 I prefer, used a mix o...

This was SO good. I made it with garlic and herb goats cheese, white balsamic vinegar, and sliced almonds as that's what I had on hand. Absolutely delicious. Will definitely make again. Thanks s...

Yum, yum, yum. I made this as a starter to our meal. Next time I'm skipping the "dinner" course and eating more of this one. Thanks for the recipe!

Great salad dressing. Some variations: I used regular lettuce, since I didn't have arugula, sunflower seeds that I toasted in the oven while I was making the tartines, and added about a teaspoon...

Super Yumm-a-licious! I skipped the tartine (goat cheese is expensive!) and just spread some alouette on water crackers for a side-crunch. This salad makes me want to have ladies over for lunch!

This was excellent--light and very tasty. French hubby and I both loved it. I used pine nuts instead of hazelnuts.
