Our Sweet Balsamic Onion Relish Recipe is so good that you might even eat it plain. We love putting it on our piling it on our burgers, topping it on our eggs, piling it high on grilled mushrooms or even on some toast with cheese.
The best part of all it’s quick and easy to make. There’s no muss and no fuss. Just slice up your onions and let it cook for the most part.
If you don’t want them sliced you can also dice up your onions. Dicing them up makes this sweet balsamic onion relish recipe even easier to use as a topping for small bites!
Onions are one of our favorite root vegetables and we go through them often. In our house we eat about one to two onions a day. We love them grilled, sautéed, caramelized or even raw in a salad or sandwich.
For a great burger recipe using our caramelized onions visit Courtney’s Sweets and try the Avocado Bacon Burger with Sweet Balsamic Onion Relish. It has an entire avocado on it! This burger recipe is insanely delicious!

- Cook the onions on medium-low for about an hour, just until onions are cooked down and balsamic vinegar is reduced

You can cook the vinegar until it’s reduced and the sauce becomes thick or you can simply drain and then have just the onions without the thick sauce.
I’ll be using this relish for the rest of the week. It’s great to make a batch and just have in your refrigerator for whenever you’d like to use it.
