This mighty relish is one that I grew up with. This was originally a green tomato relish recipe, but one year my mom found herself with a lack of green tomatoes and an excess of monster zucchini. So she adapted. Different than most relishes in that it contains cabbage, I haven't yet found one that will match the flavor and texture. It's wonderful for hamburgers and hot dogs. And it makes killer tartar sauce for fish and chips (see Unknownchef86's Killer Zucchini Relish Tartar Sauce). Once when I was a kid, and she was making fish and chips, my mom ran out of this relish. She sent one of my brothers to the store for tartar sauce. It eventually wound up being thrown out, because no one would eat it. In a houseful of non-picky eaters...that says something! PS: This recipe works best with those huge zucchini that you can occasionally find in your garden...and that other people are usually desperate to get rid of! While my mom used to peel the zucchini before making this, I find I prefer it unpeeled, as it adds to the color. Sorry I can't tell you the quantity...we never counted. Prep time is approximate, and does not include the drain-time. Note (11/03/2006): I accidentally omitted the onions when I originally posted the recipe. That has been corrected. Thanks to Chef 238044 for catching that error for me! (I wondered why you added extra onions when I read your review...oops!)
