Power Greens Bruschetta

Gently wilted greens, juicy tomato and crunchy, salty sunflower seeds tossed in a decadent honey-garlic vinaigrette — and piled on seedy bread. Doesn’t that sound scrumptious? If you eat it just like that, it’s such a light, healthy repast for the happy hour. Everyone loves finger food!

But you can easily turn this bruschetta into a meal. We like to spread a dollop of chèvre on the bread — we love the creamy texture it adds, and it’s a nice contrast with the lemony dressing. If we’re really going for hearty, we’ll top the whole bruschetta with a poached egg. The lush yolk breaks over all those greens, and it’s fantastic!

A word about the dressing: Our chefs have dubbed it Foolproof Dressing because it comes together in a snap, but that ease belies its full flavor. It’s made with honey, Dijon, lemon juice, and garlic, so it whisks up sweet, tangy and delightfully garlicky. It’s our new go-to salad dressing because it tastes amazing on veggies, greens and fruit.

Ingredients
Foolproof Dressing:
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
¼ cup honey
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup organic lemon juice
⅔ cup extra virgin olive oil

Bruschetta:
2 cups chard, cut in a chiffonade
2 cups dinosaur kale, cut in a chiffonade
2 cups dandelion greens, cut in a chiffonade
4 tomatoes, diced small
½ cup L&B Roasted Salted Sunflower Seeds
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons Foolproof Dressing
1 loaf L&B SuperSeed or Six Seed Artisan Bread, sliced
½ cup chèvre cheese, optional

Directions

  1. To make the dressing: Combine all the dressing ingredients but the olive oil and whisk together.
  2. Slowly whisk in olive oil until emulsified. Set aside. Note: leftover dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  3. To make the bruschetta: Place the greens in large bowl. Add the tomatoes, sunflower seeds and dressing and toss to coat greens.
  4. Spread the chevre on the bread, if you like, and top each slice with a few tablespoons of the greens mixture.
