Slice the baguette and set each piece on a serving dish. You can also slightly toast each piece by placing it on a pan and into the hot oven for one minute.

Once slightly toasted place them on a platter. We have chosen to top this wooden serving platter with a bed of fresh arugula. Several slices of bread are placed on top of the arugula and each is drizzled with good olive oil.
