  1. Set up your grill for indirect heat. If using a charcoal grill, build the coals on one side only. If using a gas grill, heat one side only.
  2. Tie the bundle of fresh rosemary together using butcher’s twine. Pour 1/4 cup of olive oil into a small dish for basting. Using the rosemary bundle as a pastry brush, dip in the olive oil and brush the bread on both sides. Place the bread slices on the direct heat side of the grill to char on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
  3. Once both sides of the bread are charred, move the bread to the indirect heat side of the grill, place the rosemary bundle in between the bread slices, close the lid of the grill and cook until the bread is more crispy and golden brown on the outside, but still soft and chewy on the inside, 3 to 5 more minutes. Remove the bread slices from the grill and, while still warm, rub the entire surface with the garlic clove.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the lemon zest and lemon juice to a small mixing bowl and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Dress the arugula with the olive oil dressing. Top the grilled bread slices with the arugula. Using a vegetable peeler, shave Parmesan over the top. Cut into rustic pieces, sprinkle with some charred rosemary leaves and serve.
