Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut each goat cheese log into 5 slices. Whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Mix flour, salt and pepper in another bowl. Place almonds in a third shallow bowl.

Roll goat cheese slices in flour mixture and shake off excess. Then dip into egg mixture and roll in almonds to coat, pressing gently to adhere.

Place coated goat cheese on a greased baking sheet and drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until cheese is softened and sizzling. Allow goat cheese to cool a few minutes.

To serve, divide greens among six salad plates. Place 1 or 2 warm cheese slices on each plate. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
