I've been using your recipe for years without doing a review! As written it's pretty good. I take out the red bell pepper, change the dill to sweet peppers, change the vinegar to milk and add a can of drained tuna. Then it's exactly what my mom used to make! Thank you for giving me a recipe to work from to create my mom's!!
I did use mayo and reduced the amount of sugar somewhat. I also added a dash of garlic. Do not even try to taste this before it has been chilled. It needs time for the flavors to marry. It's an excellent hot-weather dish, and I love that it calls for dill relish! Thanks for posting! Made for August 2010 Vegetarian Swap.
