Reviews for Zucchini Relish
"This is a terrific side dish to accompany picnic foods of almost any variety.Everyone loves it whenever I make it.Great dish for hot summer days."
"I have already made two batches and getting ready to make the third. I made the following changes: coarsely grated the veggies, substituted small diced fire roasted red peppers for fresh red pepper also added 1/2 tsp mustard seed. Used onion powder instead of salt. I shared this with my family, they all love it, in fact my youngest granddaughter Sydney ate a bowlful."
"Thanks savanna2 for the suggestions. I think I might try it on some broiled fish or chicken also."
"correction,thank you Nancy for sharing.The other response goes to tastdog1 on what to use the relish on. Sorry for the mix up, my computer went down and everything got scrambled."
"tastydog1, thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I have used yours on the side with potato salad, bratwurst, and italien sausage. It was delicious. Igrande99, yes there is a recipe in the Ball canning site, but slightly different and just a delicious as the one posted if you have an overload of zucchini and want to can it. We mostly use it on grilled Bratz or Sausage and i shred everything so it wont fall out of the bun. enjoy both"
