1/3 Photos of Chilean Onion Relish
From Pommaire, a Chilean restaurant in New York. This is made for grilled beef, but could also be used with chicken. You can also make a bruschetta by spooning it over grilled bread slices. Cook time is standing time for the onions.

- 1 medium onion, cut into very fine dice

- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar (to taste) or 1/4 cup distilled vinegar (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt, kosher (to taste) or 1 teaspoon sea salt (to taste)

- 4Add the onion, tomato, pepper, cayenne, oil, and cilantro and gently toss to mix.
- 5Correct the seasoning, adding salt, vinegar, or cayenne; the relish should be highly seasoned.
