Onion and Cilantro Relish

Onion and Cilantro Relish


The next element in the Kogi short rib tacos was the "cilantro-green onion-lime relish". This relish sounded pretty simple except that when looking at photos of the Kogi tacos I always saw square white onions in addition to the elliptical green onions. Since I have often used a simple sweet white onion and cilantro relish in tacos before I decided to make a more generic onion and cilantro lime relish with both the green and white onions in it. This is such a simple condiment and yet it is really amazing. The onions in it add a nice sweet element to any dish followed a mild hidden pungent bite. A really nice freshness is added to whatever this condiment is used in by the cilantro and lime combo. The green onions are a nice addition to this version adding the Korean aspect to the relish.

I'm not TOO keen on cilantro, but that relish looks mighty worthy :)

I love cilantro relish, it's awesome in finely chopped sirloin steak sauteed in oil. I pat the steak dry real well, them sprinkle the it with a little homemade taco seasoning and some chopped fresh cilantro. I left that sit for an hour before sauteeing it. Then when cooked, top with cilantro relish in warmed corn tortillas. MMMMMM

Simple but delicious Kevin. I love cilantro and onion separately so I'd imagine I like them both together!

I love this kinda coriander relish, my mother tends to make something similar to this as an accompaniment to samosa.

I especially like the simplicity of this.

Simple but delcious indeed Kevin! It is these simple dishes that can sometimes pass us by, so thanks for always taking the time :)

This sounds like it would be a great relish to serve on just about any wrap or sandwich! I love me some cilantro.

I love this relish but have never added green onions to it - great idea!

This one really needs SUPER nice onions, but from the look of the photo, that's exactly what you've got.

So perfect on steaks, anything tex-mex...
