Sweet Pickle Relish

What is Sweet Pickle Relish?

Sweet Pickle Relish is an appetizer (sauce) of American cuisine. This is a combination of fresh cucumber, onion, celery and pickled gherkins boiled in vinegar brine. It has a pleasant sour and sweet taste at the same time. Of course, you can buy it in the store, but we prefer to make it ourselves. Relish is great for fish and meat dishes, as well as a mandatory ingredient in a Chicago-style Hot Dog. After cooking, relish can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
