Fill individual bowls with a mix of your favorite lettuce types. Drizzle it with the balsamic reduction and some olive oil.
Slice the goat cheese log into slices and cover the tops with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle the sugar of your choice in a thin layer over the oil, covering the top of each round of cheese.
Using a kitchen torch, caramelize the sugar on the cheese slices. I keep the torch at a medium flame and hold it a couple of inches away from the cheese, waving the flame over it until the sugar melts and forms a thin, golden brown layer of candy coating. If you work very quickly, the cheese will stay more solid and cold. If you work slowly, you'll also slightly melt the cheese. I like going slow and melting the cheese, but that's a matter of preference.
Sprinkle some walnuts over the top of the salad, and serve as is, or add slices of fruit, slices of chicken breast, and/or a mix of other seeds and nuts.
