  • 1 large shallot, minced (1/4 cup)
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil

  • 6 Tbs. Za’atar, divided
  • 1 8-oz. log chèvre or fresh goat cheese
  • 1 1-lb. loaf ciabatta or country French bread, cut into 16 slices

Preparation

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.
