  • Slice the baguette at an angle and brush each slice with extra virgin olive oil. Grill the bread slices on a BBQ, a hot pan on the stove, or under the broiler until lightly browned.
  • Serve ¼ cup of the edamame salsa on each piece of toasted

Notes

This recipe can also be served on endive leaves for those looking to skip the bread. Rinse the endive and pull the leaves apart creating a small scoop. Add ¼ cup of the edamame salsa to each leaf.
