The best condiments have a perfect balance of salty, sweet, and spicy flavors and short ingredient lists with few or no preservatives. Such high-quality mustards, relishes, and dressings are widely available, but sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between ho-hum products with low-quality ingredients and the perfectly balanced topper. Here are 11 easy-to-find replacements for the condiments you'll find in any fridge.
Cascadian Farm Organic Sweet Relish
Most relishes have food dyes and preservatives – many of these are questionable for your health at best. Instead, buy relish with real, chemical-free ingredients such as Cascadian Farm's organic relish, which can be found in most stores. There's also a California small-batch relish with all-natural ingredients that may be the best artisanal relish in America. Containing at least six vegetables, plus pickle relish, cider vinegar, cane sugar, and flavorings such as spices, garlic, and lemon juice concentrate, it has the homemade bite and crunch of the old-fashioned pickled veggies grandmothers used to make.
