Get Ready to Red, White, and Barbecue!

If you’re anything like us, you’re looking forward to celebrating Independence Day next week with a big outdoor family cookout, colorful sparklers, and a beautiful fireworks display. And what better to accompany the hot dogs you’re planning to grill than a topping of this zesty onion relish? Plus, it’s just as tasty on hamburgers, turkey burgers, and chicken sandwiches as it is on franks!


2 large onions, cut into quarters and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)

⅓ cup of ketchup

1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp. of water

¾ tsp. of sugar


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a nonreactive pan, and simmer until the onions are translucent (about 15 minutes).
  2. Pour the mixture into a container, cover tightly, and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.
