  • Add the cranberries, apples, and dates to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times until the fruit is roughly chopped.
  • Add the pecans to the food processor. Pulse a few more times, scrapping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Be sure not to over-process. Keep it chunky and crunchy.
  • Refrigerate the relish in an air-tight container until ready to serve.


You can make this relish up to 2 days in advance and refrigerate it until ready to serve. If kept longer than that it will become too watery. 
For a sweeter sauce, add a few more dates.
