Why Make This Tomato Relish

This relish is so beautifully flavored, I can’t recommend it more! It’s easy to make, full bodied in flavors from spices like all spice. The veggies are all bite sized and it pairs great on chicken, salmon or you can have it as a dip. It’s similar to a fresh salsa or pico de gallo but such a unique flavor. It has a sweet, savory flavor you will love.

Ingredients Needed

All the ingredients needed to make this recipe laid on a counter in small bowls.

Tomatoes. I like to use cherry tomatoes, they are the most rich in color and I favor the flavor.

Seasoning. This is where most of the flavor is! Allspice, ginger, salt, pepper, cinnamon.

Fresh oregano. This is found with all the other fresh herbs. It adds color and a wonderful flavor that pairs great with tomato.

Green Bell Pepper. You can use any color bell pepper but I love the color the green brings.

Vinegar. Red wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar. They both bring their own flavor to the recipe.

Sugar. The sweetness from the sugar brings everything together and really helps bring out the allspice and warming flavor.

All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card below.

Cherry Tomatoes. Any tomato of choice will work.
