You can use parsley instead of the basil. Or a combination of the two is great! This recipe needs a good amount of salt. At least 1/2 teaspoon usually. I use sea salt only. A dash of cayenne is always a fun addition too. This is great served with crusty bread, or eaten alone as a side salad, or over a bed of arugula from the farmer's market. Hope you enjoy!!!
