Serve this sweet and spicy sauce on a simple burger or grilled fish or chicken and turn it into something special. We love it on vegetarian burgers and cornmeal crusted eggplant cutlets.

Flavorful, colorful and easy! I was skeptical about using so much olive oil, but the sauce is not oily at all. I did zip the sauce through the blender because my DH prefers smooth sauces... the resulting sauce was a vibrant orangy red puree with flecks of green basil. I used about 2 tablespoons of the sauce over each grilled chicken breast and garnished them with sprigs of fresh basil. A keeper!
