Serving Suggestions
Serve as an hors d’oeuvre or appetizer with Italian or French baguette, boule or other artisan bread. Break into pieces and surround oil or serve mini-loaves, slices or pull apart loaves for dipping. Pairs well with a tomato/onion mozzarella plate, fruit and cheese, soups and leafy salads. Nice addition when serving light or heavy hors d’oeuvres.
