Basic Relish Tray


A relish tray is a traditionally a small sectioned dish or platter that contains items such as pickles, olives, raw vegetables or cheese cubes. They are served as appetizers before dinner and alongside the dinner.

I haven’t had a relish tray in years but decided to do one at a recent holiday dinner and it was a hit. I was quite pleased and I think I’ll do one regularly.

It’s so simple! I used large pimento stuffed party olives, pitted kalamata olives, a sweet gherkin pickles.

Try one at your next get together and don’t be surprised when everyone loves it.

More ideas for your relish tray:

Picked Okra (this is a favorite of mine)

A variety of small pickles (sweet, spicy, bread & butter)

Olives ( there are so many options available in grocery stores)

Simple Vegetables (carrot sticks, celery sticks or radishes)

Pickled Peppers

Update: After I started preparing a relish tray for holiday dinners, I have made it a tradition. I now prepare a relish tray for all meals when we have company. It’s always a success and folks really enjoy eating from the relish tray. My favorite combination that I use are jalapeno stuffed olives, pickled okra, and sweet baby pickles.
