How To Make bonnie's winter salad relish

  • 1
    This recipe makes 8 to 10 cups of Winter Salad Relish. I store mine in a 3 quart Rubbermaid container in the refrigerator and turn it upside down so the liquid is evenly distributed. You can probably swap Splenda for the sugar in this recipe. I like it in wraps for lunch, too.

    Assemble all ingredients before you begin. Wash all the vegetables and wash and core the apples. Don't peel them. Cut them into quarters and use a food chopper that has a blade for a small dice, like the Vidalia Chop Wizard, or you can hand chop the vegetables.
  • 3
    Combine all the ingredients in a large container. I use a 3 quart Rubbermaid container with a tight lid.
  • 4
    Mix the vinegar, sugar and mustard dressing in a small measuring cup.
  • 5
    Pour the dressing over the salad relish. Combine the dressing with the vegetables and apples.
