  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Brush both sides of sweet onion slices with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2
    Place onions on grill over medium heat. Cook uncovered, turning occasionally, until charred and softened. Remove onions from grill to cutting board; coarsely chop.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix sweet onions, green onions, jalapeño, oil, vinegar and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Serve relish at room temperature or chilled.

  • Cut the amount of jalapeño in half to reduce the heat. For a spicier relish, leave the jalapeño seeds in.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of sugar to sweeten the relish.
  • Use a grill basket (grill “wok”), if you have one, for grilling the onions. They can also be grilled on a stove-top grill pan or closed contact grill.
