Use a food processor and pulse until the chopped vegetables are chunky but not pureed
In a saucepan, combine the cucumber mixture and salt. Let sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the liquid from the relish mixture. Add the solids back to the saucepan, along with the vinegar, garlic, sugar, dill seed, mustard seed and celery seed.
Stir until combined and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 15 minutes
Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer hot relish to half pint jars for storing. Use the hot water bath method for proper storage
There is a lot of room for flavor enhancements! Add hot peppers for a spicier mixture. Use extra sugar for super sweet relish. Use extra onions and garlic for extra zing. Other fresh veggies such as carrots or zucchinis are a nice addition.
Be sure not to skip the straining part! This will ensure the consistency is not too runny.
Dill Pickle Relish is delicious on sandwiches, hotdogs, added to scrambled eggs and in salads like egg salad or potato salad.
