    Gooseberry and cucumber relish

    • Vegetarian
    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 6 as a relish


    ½ red onion, finely chopped
    1 tbsp sunflower oil
    200g Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients gooseberries, topped and tailed, halved if large
    1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
    1½ tbsp caster sugar
    3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
    1 tbsp finely chopped fresh root ginger
    1 small Duchy Organic ridge cucumber, peeled, deseeded and finely chopped
    small handful coriander, chopped


    1. Soften the red onion with the oil and a large pinch of salt in a frying pan set over a medium heat, stirring often. Once the onion is soft, but not coloured – about 5 minutes – stir in the gooseberries, chilli, sugar and 2 tbsp vinegar, then cook for a few minutes more. Once the gooseberries have burst, stir in the ginger, then cook for 1 minute more.

    2. Remove from the heat and add the remaining 1 tbsp vinegar. Allow to cool, then stir in the cucumber and coriander. Taste and add a little more salt if needed. Serve as a relish for grilled salmon, mackerel or halloumi.
