I just made a big batch of my quick fix spicy pickles. Man, they are good! But making them left me with a container full of dill pickle pieces. Ends, small pieces, little chunks. The parts that didn’t cut the mustard so to speak. So, what to do with those pickle scraps? Make quick fix pickle relish! I not only loved it, I thought it was much better than the store-bought stuff.
For a spicy version of this quick fix pickle relish, just add a few good pinches of dried red pepper flake. You’ll want to let the relish ‘get happy’ in the fridge for a few hours before using it so that it gets good and spicy. Stir every once-in-a-while to help speed things along.

- 1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
- 1 tablespoon pickle brine from the pickles
