Preparation / Directions:
Lightly toast the bread in a toaster or under a broiler. Rub the top side of the toast with the garlic clove. Place a round of goat cheese on the toast, top with a sprig of thyme, a grinding of black pepper, and drizzle with the olive oil. Set the toasts on a small baking sheet and broil about 6 in. (15 cm) from the heat for 3 to 5 minutes, until the cheese is soft. In a medium mixing bowl mix the greens and half the vinaigrette, tossing to combine well. Divide the greens among 4 plates, and top with the goat cheese toast. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
