Line a small, shallow baking dish with parchment paper.
Pour olive oil into a small bowl. On a small plate, stir together panko breadcrumbs and salt. Slice each goat cheese log into 4 equal rounds. Use tongs to dip each round first into olive oil, then breadcrumb mixture to coat all sides and place in prepared baking dish. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
When ready to bake goat cheese, preheat oven to 450˚F.
Bake goat cheese rounds, uncovered 10 minutes, or until breading is crisp and golden brown and cheese is soft.
While goat cheese bakes, toss salad greens in a large bowl with a little olive oil and a few splashes of red wine vinegar. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
To serve as a single appetizer, arrange greens, baked goat cheese, and artisan bread crisps or crostini on large serving platter. Or to serve as individual appetizers, place a round of goat cheese, 2 crisps or crostini, and a small serving of dressed greens on 4 small plates. Serve.
