Confession: This not only was my first time to make relish, but it also was my first time to eat relish. I don’t like pickles and I have spent my whole life thinking relish was just finely chopped pickles. However, with this version it is just like having all the grilled veggie side dishes right on top of the main course. How can you say no?
