Strawberry Relish Recipe

Whenever my husband grills chicken, we like to put a few tablespoons of this strawberry relish over the top. We've served it for company and are always asked for the recipe. —Pat Gardetta, Osage Beach, Missouri

"This recipe is fantastic on grilled chicken. We made a big batch this summer and shared it with my mother and sis-in-law!"

"This tasted awesome with the chicken and it was easy to make. It made a lot of sauce though and my kids wouldn't eat it because of the jalapenos, so next time, I'll cut the recipe in half."

"This was fabulous. Grilled chicken breast with simply salt and pepper served over a bed of spinach with chopped walnuts and crumbled blue cheese. No dressing needed this relish did the trick."
