Southern Jalapeno Relish

Here is another real unique appetizer that has gone over very well at cocktail parties….especially if there are a bunch of Yanks!  It is very popular down in Georgia and other parts of the South.  It is served with baked beans.  Me?  I like to put it on saltine crackers.  Pay real close attention to the proportions.  The great taste comes from the balance of the flavors.

12 Jalapeno peppers, diced
1 1/2 medium Onion, minced
3/8 cup Olive oil
3/8 cup Cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt

Combine oil, vinegar, and spices and whisk well.
Mix in with onions and jalapenos.
Refrigerate over night. Allow to warm up to room temp before serving.
