grilled chicken with lemon cucumber relish

Is it summertime yet?  I know we should be enjoying Spring right now since it just arrived but I am seriously ready for some flip flops, shorts, and BBQ time.  I think it is the green grass driving me to day dream about summer.

I also think it might have been this very summery dinner from the BHG May 2013 issue. It was so fresh and just screamed "SUMMER".

The relish was so good.  I will be making it again as a salad topper as well as a side with fish.
