My two grown sons actually eat this as a salad, but that's a bit too hot for me! The recipe's from my late husband's mother, and I haven't varied it over the years. I usually make a batch as soon as the first tomatoes of the season are ready. —Lela Baskins, Windsor, Missouri
These slightly crunchy pickled onions are not only a great gift for Christmas, but also a terrific contribution to a backyard barbecue as a relish for burgers and hot dogs. —Laura Winemiller, Delta, Pennsylvania
"THIS IS my favorite of Auntie Ann's dishes, and one that I enjoy making, too! Only difference is, my aunt likes to serve it cold, as relish, and I prefer to serve it warm. On a piece of garlic toast, it makes a wonderful appetizer!"
This fresh ruby-colored relish is sweet and tangy, and the apples and celery give it a terrific crunch. At our house, it's a holiday menu mainstay since it's so pleasant with poultry and pork.

Classic relish is made with cucumbers, but this sweet and tangy topper is packed with zucchini, peppers and onions. I use it on burgers, sandwiches and in any recipes that normally call for pickle relish. —Jyl Basinger, Cave City, Arkansas
I made this relish for first time 53 years ago when I was 14. My mother wasn't able to prepare Thanksgiving dinner that year, so I was the cook for our family of 12! We all liked this dish so much that it became our family's traditional cranberry relish.
I can’t seem to make enough of this zippy, chunky relish. Zucchini creates a nice change of pace from the usual pickle relish, and the assortment of peppers adds a tongue-tingling bite.—Amy Martin, Bellefontaine, Ohio
