Taste of Home Raspberry Onion Relish and Mango Cuke Relish

Growing up hotdogs were a summer food in our household and normally included ketchup and mustard. It wasn't until I moved to the state of West Virginia that I found out that hotdogs were a whole meal onto itself. People here can get very opinioned about the right hotdog stand and way to make the perfect hotdog. After eight years I am slowly accumulating to this new hotdog state and have come to appreciate a well made hotdog with 'slaw and sauce. Recently, the June/July issue of Taste of Home magazine had a recipe for Raspberry Onion Relish and Mango Cuke Relish, which I thought would be got accompaniments to brats and a new twist on my family's hotdog routine.

These two relishes are very easy to put together. The raspberry onion relish prep time is literally a couple of minutes. The mango cuke relish, takes about twenty minutes of prep due to the fruit and vegetables needing to be chopped. I had no problem finding any of the ingredients for either relish and had more than half the ingredients already in my pantry. I followed the recipes as stated with no modifications. I used the relish on stadium brats which I grilled on my indoor grill and used Heiner's sunny buns. My husband and two boys insist that sunny buns are the best buns locally available.

These recipes were a huge hit in my household. My two boys love fresh fruit and were enthusiastic about the raspberry onion relish. My husband liked both relishes, but preferred the mango cuke relish. I liked how easy these relishes were to prepare and they were a great summer spin on a traditional brat.

For the recipe go to Mango Cuke Relish and Raspberry Onion Relish.

  7. Hey Ann,
    You don't have to do anything. I just use one of your photos, and post it with the link back to your site and recipe post:)
    Thanks so much!

  8. @Mommy LaDy Club, Sounds great, thanks!

  9. Hey Frugel. This is a wonderful post. I was lucky enough to live in St Thomas for 6 months last year and discovered mangoes (they were everywhere... had a tree out my back door could pick them all day long)

    But this is a new idea... need to rework the cucumbers (my wife has a small dietary issue), but will be giving this a try

  10. @Inspired Thanks. I love mangos, so do my two boys! The recipe could easily be modified to not include the cucumbers, hope your like it as much as we did!
