Red Onion Relish

Red Onion Relish

We made this recipe in a winter salad class the other night. I love the tart flavor and bright color it adds to my food. This relish is a great topper for sandwiches, but can be used for a whole lot more.

The onions can be served with cheese and crackers for an easy appetizer. You can add some to salads, and the liquid can be combined with a little oil for a simple salad dressing. In class, we added some to a zucchini “noodle” salad. Sometimes I just like to serve it as a side dish.

I even had some with my scrambled eggs for breakfast. After you cook it, you just ladled into jars, cool it down, and store it the fridge. It will keep for weeks and weeks.
