Cucumber & Chilli Relish

Relishes, use them for burgers, to spice up salads, or serve as a side along many a different main meal....

This recipe here only asks for a few ingredients, and you can serve it straight away! I was hungry after work and a little session in the gym, and so I simply served it over bread topped with an egg, but I reckon it would add a great crunch and freshness to for example delicious home made bean burgers, yum!

If you like it hot, why not use 1/3 Scotch bonnet? I myself can't say I am that brave...

Cucumber & Chilli Relish
(Makes 1 small bowl, easily doubled)

1/2 cucumber, cut in half and core removed, sliced
1/2 red chilli, finely chopped
1 tbsp sukrin gold, xylitol or brown sugar
1 tbsp dill, either dry or fresh (finely chopped if using the latter)
1 tbsp white wine winegar
A drizzle of salt

- Guess what? You just toss all the ingredients into a bowl and swirl them about until mixed well, and it is ready to serve! How easy was that?

Also, I just want to add that this relish is not too hot at all, I reckon I could have used a whole red chilli, but then again, it all depends on the type of chilli you use.

Do you have any good relish recipes for me to try?

I hope you have had a lovely week so far! Do you have any plans for the weekend? A friend and I went to a pub quiz last night, and it is the first time it has only been two of us, but we managed to not come last (second last is still something!), and it was a lot of fun! As for the rest of the week, I'll just improvise *smiles*

  2. Så godt det høres ut- skal prøves! Agurk er faktisk min favorittgrønnsak. Og så elsker jeg dill!
    Min helg startet med å være vikar på yoga i kveld. De neste dagene går nok som vanlig, men alt jeg få gjort på den korte tiden jeg har. Akkurat nå triller jeg tur med en sovende S :)
    God helg!
