Three Colour Zucchini Relish recipe from Jacican

Each year I grow more zucchinis than we could ever reasonably use at Jacican. With the amount of courgettes that come out of my garden I'm confident that I could feed the good people of Mirboo North for at least a week! And the variety of colors, flavors and shapes our zucchinis take is just as impressive as the yeild with black, green, light green and yellow specimens all coming from the same garden bed.

In order to make the most of our bumper crops I have worked on a recipe to turn our delightful zucchinis into a three color relish with black, green and yellow highlights. This recipe has become incredibly popular, especially with the taste testing crew at Jacican who crawl out of the woodwork whenever I turn the stove on. I like to serve it on top of Cucumber & Cream Cheese Canapés or eat it alongside a frittata, but in terms of serving options it's just as flexible as your imagination.
