“This relish recipe is perfect for the ‘extra large’ zucchinis growing in your garden,” Adams writes. “Whether adding to tunafish, burgers or hot is much better than store-bought.”

If you are making this with a very large zucchini, Adams says it’s important to peel the zucchini and remove the seeds first.
