  • Cut remaining 3 slices of bread into 1/2 inch pieces. Transfer to pan with bread crumbs. Place the walnuts on a second smaller baking sheet.

  • Spray both bread pieces and crumbs with nonstick cooking spray. Season with oregano, salt and pepper. Transfer both baking pans to 375 degree F oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until crumbs and nuts are lightly browned, stirring halfway through. Remove pans from oven; increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F.

Meanwhile, make Dressing:

  • In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, mustard and sugar. In a thin stream, add olive oil, whisking continuously. Set aside.

  • Cut the goat cheese log into 6 equal pieces. Place one goat cheese slice on a paper towel; fold towel over slice. Gently press down to form a disc approximately 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Repeat.

  • Spray slices with nonstick spray. Coat completely with crumb mixture. Transfer coated goat cheese to baking sheet. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 8 minutes until lightly browned.

  • While the cheese is warming, toss together salad greens, dressing, walnuts and croutons. To serve: divide salad evenly among 6 plates. Top each with 1 goat cheese disc.
