Red Pepper Relish 

I am a snacker and I love small bites. This salsa like relish is a great topping for hummus. It is amazing in wraps or on salads.  It’s good on nacho chips and veggie tacos too.  It is super easy to make.  The one pictured was made by my BFF and has chopped English Cucumbers in it.  You can customize this relish to your liking.  Below I will give you the base and ideas for add ins.  Choose a vegetable add in or two and a herb/spice or two.  Play around with flavor combos!

Base: 

1 Jar of roasted red peppers in water, drained and chopped

4 Tablespoons of quality balsamic vinegar

Vegetable add ins: (chop small like the red peppers)

Diced English cucumber

olives (your favorite no added oil)

Green onion (scallions)

red or sweet white onion

Chopped cherry tomatoes

Chopped bell pepper

Spice/Herb add ins:

Fresh or dried basil

Fresh or dried oregano

Fresh chopped parsley

Mrs. Dash garlic and herb

Italian seasoning

Hot red pepper flakes

Lemon zest or lemon pepper

Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix salsa ingredients and let sit for 15 minutes to marry flavors.  If adding cucumber it may get watery after sitting too long but still good.

Enjoy
