Cut 12 mini stars out of 3 slices of fresh mozzarella using a mini star cutter. Set aside.
With a serrated knife, slice the baguette on the diagonal into 20 even slices. Brush each slice on both sides with olive oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until lightly toasted and golden brown around the edges.
Prepare Blueberry Balsamic Drizzle
In a large saute pan over medium heat, add blueberries and balsamic vinegar. Continuously stirring. Once blueberries burst reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce begins to reduce and thicken.
Arrange toasted bauqette by layering sliced mozzarella, basil, tomato and fresh blueberries. Garnish with mozzarella stars and drizzle with blueberry balsamic glaze. Repeat and enjoy!
First make the aioli. In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, paprika and salt. Taste and add more salt or lemon juice if desired. Set aside.
In a large cast iron or non stick skillet big enough for peppers to sit in a single layer heat avocado oil over medium high heat, until oil is shimmering and very hot.
Add peppers and let sit for about 30 seconds so they have a chance to char and blister before tossing. Cook, tossing every 30 seconds or so until peppers are charred all over and have softened slightly.
Peppers will be done once charred on all sides, and has started to soften, but is still bright green and holding it’s shape. For the best texture and flavor you don’t actually want them to cook all the way.
Serve warm, topped with generous pinch of flaky sea salt, alongside the garlicky aioli dipping sauce. Enjoy!
Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Blanch snap peas until bright green and crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Immediately transfer with a slotted spoon to ice-water bath to stop the cooking. Drain.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Add pea shoots, snap peas, lettuce, and radishes; set aside.
Prepare Warm Dressing
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Arrange pancetta in skillet in a single layer; cook, turning once, until crisp, about 12 minutes. Transfer with tongs to paper towels to drain.
Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat (if skillet seems dry, add enough oil to total 2 tablespoons fat). Add onions; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add wine; cook until most of liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add cream, and cayenne, if desired. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes.
Pour warm cream dressing over greens; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, and top with reserved pancetta.
Wash and dry the radishes and keep the greens intact or trim them within 1 inch, then thinly slice the radishes. Transfer the radishes to a medium bowl along with the shallots and salt, toss to combine, and let stand for 5 minutes.
In a bowl, whisk the rice vinegar with the soy sauce and drizzle in the olive oil, whisking until emulsified. Add the cilantro and half the dressing to the radishes and toss gently to combine. Transfer to a platter, top with the goat cheese, and serve the remaining dressing on the side.
