The sodium content in store-bought relishes varies greatly. Dill pickle relish averages about 450 mg sodium per tablespoon while some brands of sweet bell pepper relish have around 60 mg sodium per tablespoon. Since not all relish bottles stack up the same, be sure to compare their nutrition labels before purchasing. Or you can make your own low-sodium relish like this Spiced Pepper Relish with just 30 mg sodium per tablespoon or try Spicy Cucumber Relish for 30 mg sodium per tablespoon.
