Keeping your veggies fresh!

I was at my girlfriends one day and she had me try this veggies relish, she knew I would love it and did I ever!

After making this veggie relish the first time, I fell in love with this recipe for a few reasons.  My favorite way to enjoy this is on my salads. You know how you buy a green pepper and it is bad with in a week or so. I have had this relish for months in my fridge. Also all my veggies are chopped and prepped for me so I am saving time.

2 diced red peppers
8 jalapenos diced
3 celery stocks diced
1 medium carrot diced
1 onion diced
1/2 head Cauliflower
1 c. Olive Oil
1 c. Vinegar
1 t. pepper


1. Chop all veggies

      2.Place into a bowl the green and red peppers, jalapenos, celery, carrots, onion, and
        cauliflower.  Stir in salt, and fill with enough cold water to cover. Place plastic wrap over the
        bowl, and refrigerate overnight.
      3.The next day, drain water, and rinse vegetables. In a bowl, mix together garlic, oregano,
         and black pepper. Pour in vinegar and olive oil, and mix well. Combine
         with vegetable mixture, cover, and refrigerate.  I keep in glass jars in the fridge.
