Sorry Dancer, while I often seek out your recipes because they are tasty and healthy, this really didn't work out very well. Thouh I enjoyed the nice flavor of basil and sun dried tomatoes, they were mostly overshadowed by the saltiness. I do plan to make this with half the salt stated and willreport back on my results.
