"Pronounced Basil Roo-ee, this wonderfully flavorful dish is the perfect summer appetizer. Basil and tomatoes are seasoned with jalapeno, garlic and sea salt. I received this recipe from a wonderful woman in our toddler playgroup. Serve with your favorite dippers such as baguette slices or pita chips." — CSANDST1

1 3/4 cups
finely chopped fresh basil
tomatoes, finely chopped
2 1/3 cups
fine dry bread crumbs
jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
Good but use 1/2 the bread crumbs
Too much breadcrumb, or not enough tomato - I'm not sure which. This recipe is good but it would be much better with about half the breadcrumb. It is dry as is...
Great Recipe for a dip for parties and for using up all that basil I grew this summer! It is about the consistency of hummus so you might be able to add some chick peas in place of some of the bread crumbs.
This is very edible, but as I have many times made a "Rouille" (pronounced the same), I find that this version fades in comparison.
very good on crackers. I didn't add the Jalepeno (didn't have one) and instead added crushed red pepper. My husband loved it!
Excellent fresh flavor! I pulsed the ingredients in the food processor and spread it on toasted french bread.
I loved this, very different. just enough bite! great with crackers or bread. and does not need to be kept cold.
I used this as a topping to baguette slices, which I then broiled. As per other suggestions, I cut back on the bread crumbs. Next time, I will cut back on the garlic a bit too; it was a bit overpowering.
