    I thought this would be great as is, but I used fig balsamic vinegar and only 1 T olive oil and it was awesome! Definitely making this again!

    What can be substituted for tomatoes? I very much dislike them, even though the family loves them.

      kmstaebler – Well, I guess you could substitute them with peppers, celery, or maybe cooked eggplant. There are tons of veggies that go really well with basil (pretty much all of them), so you should just pick your favorite and add it to it. Maybe add some lime juice to the mix to give it that acidity that tomatoes provide.
