8 1/4" thick slices crusty
3 cl Garlic; cut in half length

or on a grill. While still hot, rub each slice on one
side with garlic, pressing hard to release the juices
into the bread. Sprinkle with salt to taste. Serve
as is or spoon on topping of your choice.

Tomato and herb topping: Stir together 1/4 c
extra-virgin olive oil; 1 sweet ripe tomato, seeded
and chopped; 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme;
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil and salt and
pepper to taste.

Lemon, caper, and olive topping: Stir together 1/4 cup
extra-virgin olive oil; 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed
lemon juice; 3 tablespoons chopped pitted imported
green olives and 2 teaspoons drained small capers.
