Fresh Vidalia Onion Relish

Vidalia onions are sweet and mild. If they aren’t in season you may be able to find another sweet onion such as a Walla Walla or a Texas 1020. If not, substitute a red onion.

1 medium Vidalia onion, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup pitted green olives (about 6), coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a medium bowl, combine the onion, bell pepper, olives, mint, lemon juice, honey, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using. Store the relish in the refrigerator.
