Pindjur or pinjur or pinđur (Bosnian: pinđur, Bulgarian: пинджур, Serbian: пинђур, pinđur, Macedonian: пинџур) is a relish form and is commonly used as a summer spread. Pindjur is commonly prepared in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Serbia and Macedonia.

The traditional ingredients include red bell peppers, tomatoes, garlic, vegetable oil, and salt. Pindjur is similar to ajvar but is generally made with tomatoes. In some regions the words are used interchangeably.

The creation of this traditional relish is a rather long process which involves baking some of the ingredients for hours, as well as roasting the peppers and peeling them.
