    These were really yummy and a fairly healthy appetizer. They were a hit at my dinner party last week. Tonight I took the suggestion of adding the relish to some couscous. I added some walnuts, a tablespoon of oil, balsamic vinegar instead of wine, and some cumin and coriander. It was very tasty.
