I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited summer is finally here. My calendar is already filling up with all sorts of summery plans. I’m especially excited about our two beach trips coming up. I love that Arizona is such a short drive to the beach – it makes it easy.
I’ve got a trip to Rocky Point on the books for July. Truth be told, I haven’t been since I was like 12 so I’m curious to see if it’s anything like I remember. But really if there’s sand and water, then I’m set!
Then in August I’m headed to Huntington Beach, California to celebrate my friend Hillary’s upcoming wedding with a bunch of our girlfriends. We’re renting a condo and taking a long weekend – it’ll be a blast :) In between the beach trips my summer will be sprinkled with lazy days by the pool, trips to the lake, BBQ’s and impromptu entertaining. Do you have anything fun on your summer agenda?
As soon as summer rolls around I immediately turn to easy and simple entertaining. Maybe cuz it’s hot outside – or maybe it’s just because I want to spend my time relaxing with guests. Sun tea, simple salads and easy things to throw on the grill. Hebrew National hot dogs fit that bill perfectly.
Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it can’t wow your guests with something homemade – like this mustard relish. You guys.
Have you ever had mustard relish? I bought some when we were camping at the lake for memorial day since I know most people like relish on their hot dogs. Emily mentioned that she loves mustard relish – that’s when she had my attention…this was the first I had ever heard of mustard relish. As a mustard fan, I happily dished some onto my hot dog and in 1 bite I was sold (what have I been missing my whole life?!).
Naturally, when I got home I made it my mission to make my own homemade mustard relish. This stuff is simple, fresh and packed full of flavor. I’d take this relish over the store bought stuff any day. And guess what? You just throw all the veggies into your food processor and let it do all the hard work. Easy & quick!
- ½ cup roughly chopped Kosher dill pickles
- ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- In the bowl of a food processor combine pickles, bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Pulse in food processor until vegetables are minced*.
- Remove pickle mixture from the food processor and stir in mustard until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Relish can be refrigerated for 5 days.
- *If you do not have a food processor you can mince the pickles, bell pepper, onion and garlic by hand before stirring in the mustard.
