Za’atar and Goat Cheese Tartines

Za’atar adds so much flavor to this tartine you could easily skip the cheese.



Ingredient Line: 
2 medium tomatoes, finely diced (2 cups)
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups wild arugula (look for very small leaves)
Ingredient Line: 
1 large shallot, minced (¼ cup)
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. lemon juice
Ingredient Line: 
6 Tbs. Za’atar, divided
Ingredient Line: 
1 8-oz. log chèvre or fresh goat cheese
Ingredient Line: 
1 1-lb. loaf ciabatta or country French bread, cut into 16 slices


1. Preheat oven to broil. Toss together tomatoes, arugula, and shallot in large bowl. Add oil, lemon juice, and 1 tsp. Za’atar; toss to coat. Set aside.

2. Spread chèvre on bread slices, and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle each bread slice with 1 tsp. Za’atar. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, or until bread is crisp and Za’atar darkens.

3. Place 2 bread slices on each plate. Top each with 1/4 cup tomato-arugula mixture.
