This is a wonderful way to use fresh basil and tomato from the garden and a steak on the grill. You might not have had a vegetable relish on steak before and neither had my husband or myself. We were delighted with the flavor mixed with the steak. You'll need a way to saute the vegetables on the grill, such as a grilling basket. Skewers are also an alternative. Adapted from Food and Wine.
