Minted Onion Relish

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Cool time 30 mins
Chill time 2 hrs
Yield Makes 3 cups
This is great with grilled chicken or pork. It's also good on a relish tray for hamburgers and hot dogs.


  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh mint sprigs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 (4-oz.) jar diced pimiento, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

How to Make It

  1. Cook first 4 ingredients in a Dutch oven over low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium, and cook 10 minutes. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding mint sprigs. Return vinegar mixture to Dutch oven, and bring to a boil. Add onion rings; bring to a boil, and boil 1 minute. Remove onion mixture from heat, and stir in diced pimiento. Cool 30 minutes.

  2. Stir 2 Tbsp. chopped mint into onion mixture; cover and chill at least 2 hours.
