A simple small-batch relish is a good way to turn abundant zucchini into something more creative than the typical side dish. The single-jar yield means you don't have to process it in a boiling water canner – just refrigerate it in an airtight container. Serve the relish with grilled chicken or pork, on grilled burgers or sausages, or even in place of salsa with tortilla chips.
