This recipe serves:  6
6 ounces fresh goat cheese, room temperature
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh chives, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fresh, chopped, flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon fresh, chopped mint
2 teaspoons fresh, chopped oregano
1 teaspoon fresh, chopped thyme
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 pound spinach, washed and ends trimmed
6 slices rustic, country-style bread
Cooking Instructions
1. In a bowl, mash together the goat cheese, lemon zest, chives, parsley, mint, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper. Reserve.

2. In a large frying pan, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the spinach and with tongs, toss the spinach until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
