Zesty Habanero Pickle Relish

zesty habanero pickles relish on hot dog in bun on plate
Use on hot dogs or burgers. Add some relish to your potato or macaroni salad. Or just toss a few spoonfuls on top of any salad to add a zesty crunchy bite.

I peered into my refrigerator and looked into a half empty jar of NRB Zesty habanero pickles and had an idea. I extracted 4 lonely spears and a few floating slices of habanero peppers. I diced all of these flavor bombs together and mixed in a bit of olive oil just to bind the mixture together. I grilled a few hot dogs and generously sprinkled on this freshly made relish.

The spicy, crunchy, brinery flavor was the perfect topping for a hot dog still steaming from the grill.
I will never again consume a hot dog without this delicious concoction.
See if you agree.
