Speck and Provolone Wrap with Fig, Grape and Pear Relish

September 28, 2010


Author Notes: I was recently at an event that served a fig and grape relish. It was so refreshing on a hot late summer day that I wanted to try to recreate it at home and do my own twist on it. This wrap was born from that.TheWimpyVegetarian

I'm making this relish, using some of my green tomato and apple chutney, to use on post T-Day sandwiches . . . turkey + speck + this + some arugula sounds about right. Great recipe!! How far in advance do you think I can make it? Tuesday? Wednesday? I suppose I could make it on Friday, but I always like relishes to have a bit of time to allow the flavors to develop. Thanks!! ;o)

The relish has lasted several days for me without any problem at all. And I agree with letting the relishes having time to meld their flavors! This should be beautiful with turkey and speck sandwiches with your green tomato and apple chutney. Please let me know how it turns out! I'm just now sitting down to plan our Thanksgiving meal. We do it in Atlanta, but I do the majority of the cooking and Myles' family does all the shopping for me before I arrive :-)

Thanks TiggyBee! I'm keeping a little jar of the relish in the fridge for a little dessert with some greek yogurt. If you try it, would love to hear what you think!
