Prepare the ingredients & make the scallion relish:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the scallion relish:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the sweet peppers; remove and discard the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Halve the celery lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Combine in a bowl. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling the pepper. In a bowl, combine the sliced scallions, half the vinegar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper.

Turn off the heat.
