Yellow Pepper Relish

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 3h

2 cups

A colorful relish for burgers, this is also great stirred into nonfat yogurt for a vegetable dip or combined with light mayonnaise for a zippy salad dressing.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.


  • 3 cups water
  • 3 yellow bell peppers, seeded
  • 2 medium onions, peeled
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons frozen pineapple juice concentrate
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 serrano chili or jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (optional)


Put the water on to boil in a medium saucepan.

Meanwhile, shred the peppers and onions with the large-hole side of a box grater into a large bowl. Finely chop any remaining pieces of onion or pepper and add them to the bowl. Cover with the boiling water and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain in a large colander for 5 minutes (don't squeeze out any moisture).

Place the shredded vegetables, sugar, vinegar, pineapple juice concentrate, salt and chili (or jalapeño), if using, in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium-low and gently simmer until thickened and tender, 25 to 30 minutes. If the mixture gets too dry before the peppers are tender, add water, 2 tablespoons at a time. Refrigerate, uncovered, until chilled, about 2 hours.
