From Dr. Weil. This is a great taste accompaniment to bread instead of butter or olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It is a versatile accompaniment for toasted baguettes or warm crepes. You can also use it as a dip made for thick chunks of French bread or pita sandwiches.

  4. Cut the baguette into 1-inch slices and brush the remaining tablespoons of olive oil over them, then broil on the lower rack until lightly browned.
