Sweet Red Onion Relish

Photo: Marcus Nilsson; Styling: Deborah Williams
Yield

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and serve alongside grilled poultry, meat, or seafood.

    Tips: Relishes, sauces, and salsas liven up food that has been grilled with little seasoning. Mix up two or three of these simple blends and let diners dress their food as desired.

    Most relishes, sauces, and salsas improve when their ingredients have had a few hours to meld (though the mixtures should be discarded after 48 hours). Try leftovers on a sandwich the next day.

    These toppers can also be used on foods grilled with complementary marinades, rubs, or glazes.

    Best With: Beef, pork, and lamb.
