Mixed Greens, Pears, Radishes, and Warm Goat Cheese Crostini


8 thin slices of a French baguette
Olive oil for drizzling    
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil          
8 thin slices of goat cheese 6-8 ounces (Nocetto di Capra or similar cheese)
2 radishes shaved thin
4 cups baby mixed greens
1 ripe Bosc pear, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced  
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place a cookie tray with bread slices drizzled with olive oil in a preheated, 350-degree oven until crostini is golden brown (approximately 10 minutes). In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place goat cheese on crostini and warm in oven for several minutes. In a bowl, combine radish, greens and pear and dress with lemon dressing. On cool plates, serve a pile of the salad, two crostinis, and a drizzle of the remaining dressing. Garnish the plate with a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper.
