I found this recipe while browsing through my kosher for Passover collection used at Hillel. I love balsamic vinegar and kudos to Bartenura for making it kosher and kosher for Passover. This recipe has onion and tomato along with the herbs. In the past, I've simplified it and made the olive oil and balsamic vinegar marinade with fresh herbs. Either way, it's yummy. I used dried herbs today as I didn't feel like spending money on fresh, or running to my mother's where my herb garden is. Except for the basil, I love the way fresh basil opens my sinuses; the way it melds with tomato. Anyway, keep in mind that a recipe is the written tradition. We have an oral tradition with every recipe, and of course, we adapt to any given situation. Taste the sauce and tweak it with your own creative touch. That is what cooking is all about!
