Kielbasa and Watermelon Relish

Watermelon relish paired with kielbasa brings a smooth finish to this recipe.

  • 1 cup minced watermelon
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 3 pounds kielbasa

Mix the watermelon, onion and cabbage in a mixing bowl. In another small bowl slowly mix the vinegar into the mustard and then pour the mixture over the watermelon/onion/cabbage mixture and toss together. Grill the kielbasa until brown and crisp on the exterior but still juicy inside. Remove from grill to a cutting board and cool for 5 minutes before cutting the kielbasa into bite sized pieces and skewer them with a pick. Serve warm with the relish for scooping with the kielbasa.
