Ajvar is a condiment made principally from red bell peppers, eggplants, and oil. The relish became a popular side dish throughout Yugoslavia after World War II and is nowadays popular in Southeastern Europe.
Ajvar is an ideal aromatic side dish to crispy baked or grilled vegetables. It also enriches and sets off the taste of grilled meat accentuating the smoky, meaty aromas with its fresh sweet taste. It is excellent company to all roasted, fried, sautéed or boiled red meats and poultry alike.
