  1. 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  2. 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  3. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  4. 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar mixed with 2 tablespoons water
  5. 1/4 cup canola oil
  6. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. One 11-ounce log of pepper-coated goat cheese, cut into 12 slices
  9. 1/2 pound mesclun (mixed greens)
  10. 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  11. 1/2 cup snipped fresh chives
  12. 1/4 cup small fresh basil leaves
  13. 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves
  14. 2 tablespoons fresh chervil leaves
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, shallots, garlic and diluted vinegar. Gradually whisk in the oils in a thin stream. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Set the goat cheese slices on a baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with vinaigrette. Broil for 1 minute, or just until the cheese is warmed through.

Make Ahead The vinaigrette can be refrigerated overnight.
