I have made this relish salad for many years. It is tasty and very versatile - it can be used as a side dish, as a relish along side plain meats, I have even added it to tacos! I like the spiciness the jalapeno adds, but if you don't then just leave it out. Sometimes I will substitute chopped red onion for the radish. I hope you like it, too!
