I had no anchovis at hand, so I substituted them with some pickled Kalamata olives and dry salted capers.

    Wow! How delicious does that look! I’m quite partial to tomatoes and basil and I love that you used capers and olives in place of anchovies.

    Oh, this is a great fresh combo of flavors- nice choice for this theme. We grow basil and if you like it fresh, as you had purchased, you would love having some outside your kitchen door. Eays to grow. I would love this salad.
