This is a great relish for hot dogs, hamburgers or grilled sausages! There are a few ingredients, but don't let that stop you!

I will come back to post the stars after I've tried it. I made the relish today, reducing it to 1/3 recipe (just DH and I). It smells wonderful, and I could hardly stand to wait before trying it. But, I covered it up, and will try with hamburgers in a few days. I came back to post the stars. YUM! It really makes ordinary hot dogs an outstanding meal. Loved the sweet/tangy onion flavor.
