Crisp, cheesy, peppery toasts dress up a simple salad. For a garnish that's even easier, top the salad with delicate shavings of Parmesan.

Crostini

  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  3. 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  4. Twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick baguette slices

Salad

  1. 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  2. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  5. 4 Belgian endives, sliced crossswise 2 inches thick
