Preheat oven to Broil.
Whisk olive oil, herbs, and salt in bowl until thoroughly blended.
Slice bread in half lengthwise, and drizzle olive-oil mixture over both cut surfaces.
(If loaf is exceptionally large, you may need to increase quantities of oil and herbs.) Place bread on baking sheet; broil, cut-sides up, for 1 to 2 minutes or until surface of bread is lightly browned.
Sprinkle with cheese if desired.
