You can use basil instead of chives if that is your preference and, depending on the acidity of your tomatoes, you may want to cut back on the vinegar a wee bit. And hey – using balsamic instead of red wine vinegar could be interesting! As always, taste as you go!  Roasting the tomatoes is always a fun alternative as well.    There are so many ways to change a recipe up and make it your own.
