Hello Everyone. Happy Sunday!
Today I thought I would make something a little bit different and show you this recipe for a sweet onion and red pepper relish. This is super easy to prepare and can be used for so many different things; this is great on its own as a snack with crackers or would also taste good on top of a flatbread or tacos. This is not like anything I have made before, the flavor is very unique and almost has a sweet and sour taste to it with a hint of spice. Keep reading for recipe.

Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/Plant Based/Vegan/Dips/Easy
*1 Large Sweet Onion
*2 Red Bell Peppers
*2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
*5 Cloves of Garlic
*1 tsp of Sea Salt
*1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
*1 tsp of Dijon mustard
*1 tsp of Balsamic Vinegar
*1/2 Cup of Sugar
*1/2 Cup of White Wine Vinegar
*Dill (For Garnish)
*Chop up your sweet onion and red pepper into small pieces
*Over medium heat, saute the sweet onion and red pepper in a saucepan with the olive oil for about 4 minutes until the onion starts to soften
*Add the garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, balsamic vinegar and mustard into the saucepan and continue sauteing stirring frequently for about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium low to prevent the garlic from burning.
*Add the sugar and the vinegar, bring to a simmer at medium-high heat and cook stirring every so often for about 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
*Let the relish cool. Place into a bowl to serve immediately or place in fridge for up to a week.
I hope that you have enjoyed this recipe! It is something that I will be making again as I really liked the flavor, I liked that it is tangy but also a bit spicy with the red pepper flakes. This would make a great addition to a party or used as a condiment with dinner and it is also super easy to make which is nice!
I hope that you have all had good weekends, what did you get up to? Let me know in the comments below!
