Relish This!


Giving back yard condiments a run for their money, Relish This is sweet, tangy and bright.  Made with zucchini, sweet peppers and onions this relish is packed-full of flavor and a true local favorite here in town.   We love spreading on big fat juicy burgers, adding it as a pop of freshness to chicken salad or simply topped on charred hot dogs.  Our go-to picnic provision.
