Grilled French Bread

I know, it seems so simple.  However most people forget that they can actually slice up a loaf of French or Italian bread and grill it outdoors on the grill.  Perfect summer compliment to any meal!

1 large loaf of your favorite hearty bread (French, Italian, other)
olive oil
kosher salt

Cut bread on the diagonal into 1 - 1 1/2 inch slices.

Brush both sides with olive oil.  Don't be shy, give it some love.  You don't want it dripping but you don't want it dry either.

Lay them all out on a large cookie sheet until you are ready to grill.  Sprinkle both sides with kosher salt (to taste).

When the meal is almost ready, pop these tasty morsels on the grill until golden on each side.

You can add garlic, rosemary, cracked pepper or whatever else you like to the olive oil before you toast however, the simple classic harmony of olive oil and kosher salt blends together like nothing else in this world on the grill. 

Serve hot.  I can almost guarantee that you'll never eat just one slice.  Enjoy!
