1½ tsp. pepper, divided

½ cup Gorgonzola cheese

2 tsp. olive oil

¾ cup olive oil and balsamic vinegar salad dressing

8 cups mixed gourmet salad greens

½ cup broken walnuts, toasted

Preparation

Cook rice according to package directions; set aside to steam.

While the rice is steaming, heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the Gorgonzola, olive oil, ½ tsp. of the pepper, and half of the thyme; spread onto the bread slices. Bake on a baking sheet until edges are browned, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk salad dressing and mustard together. Toss salad greens with enough dressing to coat them and divide among 4 serving dishes.

Stir mushrooms and remaining thyme and pepper into the rice; Spoon into the center of the plated salad greens and garnish with walnuts. Arrange bruschetta around the edges of the rice salad or spoon greens and rice atop the brushetta.
