July is Burger Month!

RelishThis loves this time of the year.  It's great to do backyard entertaining with family and friends, try new recipes and just enjoy summer foods.  This month we are spotlighting burgers.  It's an all American BBQ favorite and one of ours too.  We love adorning our burgers and hot dogs with our different flavors of Zucchini Relish.  Our regular Zucchini Relish is a flavorful and a little sweet while Zucchini Relish Hot has some jalapeno bite to it and Zucchini Relish HOT HOT has more heat from the addition of habenero peppers.

Our favorite Grilled Burger recipe is below and here are some additional summertime uses for Zucchini Relish:

  • Spice up your Deviled Eggs

  • Stir into softened cream cheese for a bagel spread

  • Add to your Tuna Salad

  • Serve along side your other condiments
