Recipe by Chabear01
This recipe came from a book of Sheryl Arnoldy's who was a great caterer but also owned the popular restaraunt The Lunch Bucket here in Sacramento back in the day. This relish can be used as a salsa or as a condiment with meat or the likes. This makes for great items to add to gift baskets.
