My mom used to make this relish when I was growing up. It was a great use of all the huge Zucchini that grew in our garden. There always seemed to be more than you could possibly eat!
Not as sweet as standard green relish I love the homemade flavor this adds to burgers and dogs - there is nothing quite like it! You can also substitute cucumbers for the Zucchini if that happens to be your garden crop of choice! Enjoy!
