Carefully holding 1 slice of cheese at a time, place in the olive oil, turning to coat on all sides. Then place in the bread crumbs and turn to coat thoroughly with the crumbs.

    I love this Salad Jen! I am a sucker for Chicory and your right, the goat cheese is perfect with the bite of the endive. High 5! A quick thought for Michael. If you cant find the walnut vinegar, you could possible substitute walnut oil of the olive oil. Its much easier to find... Jim
