Since I'm allergic to sesame, I had to come up with my own version of this classic recipe. This is also a great starting place for dip experimentation. You can add sun dried tomatoes, capers, artichokes, just about anything. 1 tsp of basil flavored olive oil or pesto will work in place of basil essence.
