Cucumber relish

This cucumber relish is perfect to have on your veggie burger. We used it on a halloumi burger (recipe coming soon) and it worked really nice. Our inspiration was the Swedish relish style Bostongruka which has its name from the Boston cucumber they used to make the relish with. We use the Swedish vinegar spirit called Ättika in this recipe, you can use white vinegar instead.
