  1. It was perfect the first time. This is very really unique helpful information.I learn so much from you as well! Thank you so much for sharing your helpful information. Keep it up.

  2. Without a doubt, the makers of Harry and David Pepper and onion relish want a bunch of customers to get sick. I have tried repeatedly and others the same to find out what the shelf life is once opened and refrigerated. No one cares to answer. I will just purchase the grocery story brand from now on.

    • Pam, we are sorry you have not received an answer to your question.

      Our Pepper and Onion relish is safe for consumption, if unopened, for up to two years from receipt. Once opened, the product should be refrigerated and consumed within one month.

    Can the pepper and onion relish dip be used with vegggie tray?

    • Ann, we can say that it can completely be paired with vegetables.

      The Pepper and Onion Relish Dip is a favorite around here, and we have seen it paired with a verity of things. We encourage you to give it a try. If you have any other questions, please contact us at

  4. I purchased a variety box on QVC & looking forward to using this for a Xmas get together. Happy Holidays. Jennifer

  5. I also us it in my chili…adds just the right amount of “kick” to it! Never make meatloaf without it anymore…for the last few years, I buy it by the case…not have the office girls hooked on this too ! Great product! One of the favorites for our Christmas Eve appetizer selection too.

    A friend of mine made the Pepper and Onion Relish dip for a party. It was so delicious I asked her how to make it. She not only gave me the instructions, she also gave me a jar of the relish. I served it at my granddaughter’s celebration party after her pinning as LPN. The tortilla chips were gone but we were not to be denied…Doritos nacho cheese chips were used and every delicious bite was eaten! I will be placing my first order!

      When properly refrigerated, we recommend consumption within 2 weeks for our Pepper Relish and Cream Cheese Dip.

      • I usually purchase the 10oz size relish and add cream cheese, it is often gone within a day. However this time I bought the 26oz size. I was wondering if I remove 10oz from the jar and and mix it with cream cheese in a separate bowl , how long will the remaining unmixed ,opened jar of relish be good for in my refrigerator?
        Thank you

      Jong, we have strict requirements for products that we call gluten free which includes certification or product analysis and production in a facility that does not process gluten. As such, only items that are labeled as Gluten Free are certified as being gluten free. As our Pepper and Onion Relish is processed in a facility that also processes items with gluten, we cannot certify that it is gluten free.

  7. I like to add garlic powder and onion powder to taste; adds a bit of kick to it.

    • Tiana Madera Reply

      Randy, what a great question. Since we have never actually tried this recipe heated, we advise that you take care in heating the cream cheese. The relish can be heated, but the process of heating the cream cheese for too long or too fast can cause it to separate. If you have further questions, please contact us at Thank you!

    I always pour it on top of the cream cheese, I may try blending it.

  9. 16 oz of cream cheese and one jar of H&D sweet onion relish or other flavor.

  10. Does anybody know after you mix the Harry and David’s and the cream cheese how long will it last in the fridge ?

  11. Does anyone know how long the onion & pepper relish will last in the refrigerator once it has been opened? I have only used half a jar and am not sure how long to keep the rest?

  12. I use 1/2 jar to 1 8oz block of cream cheese. We serve it with Staci’s Pita chips. Addicting.

  13. Pour a jar over a pork loin and cook in a slow cooker until done!

  14. I love it on hot,dogs also great with dried beans
    Wonderful product

    what kind of snack crackers do you serve with the pepper and onion relish/cream cheese dip?

  16. I love the pepper and onion relish. I just combined it with classic hummus – to taste. YUMMO! I do love it with cream cheese but using hummus makes it a bit healthier and it still tastes very good! I highly recommend you try it.

  17. I’ve always used two packages of the cream cheese…yummo!

    • I’ve always used two blocks of cream cheese as well. I love it with freetos scoops.

      • I believe that the original recipe was 1/2 jar to 8 oz cream cheese

        • I believe that 1/2 jar to 80z cream cheese is correct. Where is the nearest store to my zip 28501?
