  4. In a medium bowl, toss the arugula with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and the herbs. Squeeze in the juice of the lemons and season with salt and pepper.
  5. To serve, cut the baguette crosswise evenly into four pieces, then slice each piece in half lengthwise. Spread the labne mixture on the insides of the slices of bread, then top the bottom half of each piece of baguette with the sosis bandari and the herb salad. Finish with the top half of the baguette and get into it.
