I would try finely diced Cornichon - though the
texture and taste wouldn't be the same I think it would give
a satisfying result.

Guy's thanks for all the replies! The reason I didn't use capers and was looking for a sub. is I did not have any. It sounds like I would like them from all of the comments on here. I love green olives. I fixed the pork chops without the capers, with just the dijon, lemon juice, and bread crumbs. It tasted good, but I bet it would have tasted better with the crushed capers! I'll buy some and try the chops again later. Are maybe Uncle Bob would be kind enough to give me his sauce recipe to try? What section of the store would I find capers, spice section? Are do they come in a jar, just like olives? Ahh, don't have to cook tonight! My son just called, and he is going to take the Wife & I out this evening for dinner! It's our 27th anniversary. I knew I did something right raising him! Anyway, thanks for all the replies, I really appreicate it. Dave L.

Happy Anniversary!

Capers generally come in a jar. I find them with the pickles and olives or in the Italian section of my supermarket.

We sub capers for olives, so why not olives for capers? Do try the capers, though, they're really good.

Green Peppercorns would work great with the other ingredients. I fell in love with capers when traveling in Greece. I put capers in about anything!
