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.
1. To make Goat Cheese Spread: Mash goat cheese with goat milk in bowl. Stir in arugula, chives, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
2. To make Arugula Sauce: Blend arugula, garlic, and lemon zest in food processor until finely chopped. Add olive oil and lemon juice, and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
3. To assemble Bruschetta: Spread each baguette slice with 11/2 tsp. Goat Cheese Spread. Top with 1/2 tsp. Arugula Sauce. Garnish each with cherry tomato half and several arugula leaves.
