I hope everyone has had a great August! We have been busy here, and are waiting for this heat to end. I am looking forward to brisk air, pumpkin spice, fresh local apples, and everything fall. At the same time, I am enjoying the end of the cookout season and trying to get my favorite foods in while I can. One of my favorite things to make is pickle relish. I am still taking a little time off, but wanted to re-share my version of this delicious cookout staple. I am hoping to be back next week. I have been getting my little ones ready for the school year, and am also spending some time thinking about the direction of this blog. I hope you enjoy this relish as much as we do. It is delicious and unique, and can literally be eaten with a spoon.
- 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp and 1 tsp. sugar
- ½ tsp. ground mustard
- ½ tsp. ground coriander
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 cup chopped dill pickles
- ¾ cup chopped peppers (equal parts orange bell, poblano, and cubanelle)
- ¾ cup peeled and chopped roasted red peppers
- ½ cup chopped onions (sweet preferable)
- ¼ cup chopped shallots (about 1 large shallot)
#1 Use this relish for entertaining. This is a great make-ahead addition to your spread.
#2 Serve it with chips or crostini as an appetizer, and not just as a condiment.
#3 Use it on an everyday sandwich or salad to turn them into something extraordinary.
