Recipe Comments & Reviews

this recipe has a very fresh taste. and is quick to make.

I made this for our Thanksgiving Dinner, got many good comments on the relish. It is not a very sweet relish, but it was well like by grandma, that was the main test!
Really good. Very sweet but wasn't what I was looking for or expecting. Guests loved it.
This recipe is absolutely delicious. I served it to my family and plan to serve it sgain to guests on Thanksgiving.
