Brighten Up Your Boring Fish Or Chicken Dish With This Zingy Corn Relish

This easy-to-make relish is best topped on a grilled chicken breast sandwich or crispy fish fillet sandwich. Or have it as a sweet and tangy side dish to baked chicken or seafood. You can also jazz up this relish with grilled zucchini instead of corn.


Grilled Corn and Mixed Tomato Relish

Serves 6


  • 4 pieces fresh sweet corn, husked 
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 small green tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped 
  • 2 cherry red tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 small yellow tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese


1. In a large kettle or Dutch oven, cook corn covered in boiling water for about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain.
