Goat Cheese-Arugula Bruschetta

A seasoned goat cheese spread and a lemony arugula sauce make a duo of tasty toppings for these bruschetta. Both can be prepared up to two days ahead. Fresh baguette slices rather than the toasted bread usually associated with bruschetta make these easier to eat as an hors d’oeuvre.
