"After searching for a great dill pickle relish, I combined a couple and came up with this wonderful tasting relish. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family."

"I made this last weekend and it turned out great. I did use more cucumbers, because I removed the seeds. Also used my food processor to "grind" the cukes. Added a red pepper too and did not add any sugar."
"This stuff is really good....I did not use any sugar. This is so much better than the grocery store stuff!!!"
"I've always made sweet relishes, never dill, but wanted to try something different for my 3rd batch of relish this season. This recipe is fantastic, I wish I'd made 2 batches, maybe I will if there are plenty more cukes. I did cut back on the salt and cut the sugar (to taste), used fresh dill, and Clear Jel instead of cornstarch but I just know from eating the couple teaspoons leftover in the pan that this will be our new favorite relish! Can't wait to open some in a few weeks! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"I made this relish last fall, but forgot to review it. Was reminded now because I'm making it again! My hubby never liked relish until we found Bick's Tangy Dill relish, which is what we buy whenever we can find it. Last year I had so many cucumbers that I thought I would see if I could find a recipe for homemade tangy dill relish and I stumbled upon this one. We love this relish so much - even better than Bicks :) Thanks for sharing!"
"this recipe was very easy....iaccidentally put my cornstarch in when boing the spices. it still turned out, and you can taste the mustard. I was impressed. very easy!"
"I used my food processor to shred the cukes and onions...it gave it a great texture! This is really tasty relish!"
"Delicious! 5 stars! However, I am glad I read all the reviews before trying this recipe. I noticed a lot of people wanted to use less sugar or less celery seed so I decided to sneak up on those two items. I began with 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 tsp of celery seed and tasted the brine. I kept slowly adding and tasting. I did end up using the full 3/4 cup of sugar the recipe calls for but I am a major sugar person. I can see how that might be much too sweet for someone who doesn't eat a lot of sugar. I stopped at 1 3/4 tsp of the celery seed. After tasting it I just could not add that last 1/4 tsp but then I have never used celery seed in cooking so to me that was more than enough. Wow, it is tangy! The initial taste seemed mild and then the tangy part hit me. Whoa. I have never made either dill pickles or dill relish before and I rarely eat dill so I was taken aback at first but now I am starting to fall in love with this recipe. Next time I will add more garlic because I am a garlic nut but otherwise I will keep everything the same except leave out that last 1/4 tsp of celery seed. Thanks for sharing such a good recipe. My advice to all is to add the sugar and spices a little at a time and taste the brine as you go! Everyone has such different takes you cannot expect everyone to love the same recipe with no adjustments. And for those that gave this 1 star because it tasted to sweet or too much celery I think that you owe it to yourself to try this recipe again and use less of whatever it was you found offensive. This recipe is a keeper!"
"This is a very good and tangy relish and it is easy to make, too. Thanks so much for the addition to my pickle recipes!"
"This is fabulous, makes up easy, I chopped half the cukes and put the other in the mini chopper for a great texture"
"I had lots of cukes to experiment with this year, and tried this, made a second batch. Love it!! I doubled it and still got 6 pints, but I think my cukes were very watery. I'm keeping this recipe for more batches! Can't wait to try it in different dishes."
"I love dill relish. This one was flat for me. I followed the recipe to a T. Tasted flat. Sorry."
"This is really good relish. I have canned different recipes over the last few years, and this one is the BEST hands down!"
"Tangy is right! Whew! I must say I had to add 1/2 cup of sugar to get this at a level of tanginess that I could accept. I didn't want it to be sweet like my other relish, but the vinegar was just too overpowering for me. Thanks for sharing."
"I made this recipe (tripled) with a mixture of zucchini and cucumbers. I used fewer onions than called for and omitted the sugar and cornstarch. It's an excellent recipe!! Thank you."
"This was super simple to make! Just made this, thinking of making pickles with the same liquid, do you think it will work?"
"I guess this just isn't for me. Hubby and I both tried it to make sure...since the rating is so good. We thought it tasted too much like celery."
