Delicious Summer Relish Straight From Cyprus

If you’re looking for something to liven up your morning meal, give this one a try! You will absolutely not regret it! The simple, fresh, REAL ingredients of this relish are perfection together. I got this recipe from my dear friend, Lara Baker, who grew up in Cyprus, one of the Greek islands. She whipped it up one morning, when my family was visiting hers, and I’ve been making it ever since.

The ingredients, which make this relish so unique, are mint and cumin. Who would have guessed they’d round everything off so nicely?

Next, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper. Poor mixture over the chopped ingredients and mix together.

This relish goes really well with eggs! I always use organic, cage free ones. I simple scramble one egg with a tablespoon of unsweetened coconut milk and a little salt and pepper and cook it in a frying pan.
