1. Heat the oven to 450ºF/230ºC. Slice a log of goat cheese into four. Cut the log into four disks. Wrap each disk in a slice of bacon and lay on a baking sheet. Grill for about 5 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the cheese very hot.

2. Toast the pine nuts in a dry pan on the stovetop. Toss the greens with a little bit of dressing. Scatter over the nuts. Take the bacon-wrapped cheese from the oven and lay on the salad.
