The Best Zucchini Relish Recipe – Grandma’s Secrets

After my grandmother gave me her famous zucchini relish recipe, I’ve been hooked ever since. You can whip this up in no time flat, and the flavor is out of this world!

Aside from creating loaf after loaf of Zucchini Bread, it’s a great way to use up the bumper crop of zucchini in the garden every summer.

Plus, it is a common topping for hot dogs and hamburgers in our household. We also use it in our egg salads and deviled eggs, as well as in our ham salad dishes.

It’s absolutely a great thing to have in your pantry or to share with your friends. And the best part is that you know you made it!
