Editor’s note: Strawberries and figs require careful checking for insects.
To make Olive Oil Crostini, toast eight slices from a regular (not sourdough) baguette in a toaster oven or on a hot baking sheet in a preheated 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven, turning the slices once, until lightly golden at the edges and perfectly crisp and crunchy. Brush or drizzle the tops liberally with extra virgin olive oil.
