Relish Juice as a Dressing?

Introducing a new category: Don’t Do This

I read somewhere recently that the juice from a sweet relish makes a tasty salad dressing. This sounded reasonable, but in practice maybe not so much. I tried to transform some late season garden extras into a side dish:

Toss together:

  • A couple of chopped roma tomatoes
  • A handful of tomatillos, also chopped
  • One cucumber, chopped
  • Minced fresh cilantro
  • The liquidy leftovers from last week’s relish canning (about 1/3 cup)

Not sure what was wrong, but the concensus between Jenny & I was that it was “interesting” but definitely not a keeper.
