Grilled Chicken with Lemon-Cucumber Relish

Tonight's recipe is from Better Homes and Garden. My Mom use to subscribe to the magazine and couple of years ago my Dad got me a subscription for Christmas.

The chicken was delicious. And the relish was excellent. Not our usual dinner fare. It was perfect for a hot day like today. The cumin was the perfect rub for the chicken, just enough spice. And the relish cooled it down perfectly.

We had a green salad as the side dish.
