Here is  a recipe for a delicious way to serve hot dogs (Chicago-style) using garden-fresh ingredients.  It uses Yellow Mustard Seed Powder, Celery Seed, Turmeric, Nutmeg, and Dill Weed to give the fresh cucumbers a sweet-spicy flavor. This recipe is quick and easy to make, and makes a perfect topping for the great American hot dog. Adapted from a June 2015 'Cooking Light' recipe.

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 tsp canola oil

1 tsp fresh ginger, minced

1/4  tsp Yellow Mustard Seed Powder

1 tsp Celery Seed

1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder

1/4 tsp Nutmeg Powder

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1 Tblspn sugar

1 cup finely chopped fresh cucumber

2 Tblspn diced red bell pepper

1 Tblspn chopped fresh dill (or 1 tsp dried dill weed herb)

8 All-Beef hot dogs

8 Hot Dog Buns *

8 Tomato slices, halved

4 Kosher dill pickle sandwich slices, halved

4 pepperoncini (optional)

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

Mustard


*Note:  The classic Chicago Hot Dog is served on poppy seed buns.  If you cannot find them, you can make these buns by brushing a hot dog bun with egg whites, sprinkling poppy seeds on them, and then toasting them for about 2 minutes.


Directions:  Heat oil in a skillet and add ginger, celery seed, turmeric, nutmeg, and yellow mustard seed powder.  Sauté for 1 minute.  Add sugar and vinegar and cook for 2 minutes.  Stir in cucumber, red bell pepper, and dill. Remove from heat.  To assemble the dog, place the grilled hot dog in the bun.  Add 2 tomato slices, pickles, and pepperoncini (if desired).  Top with the relish, onions, and mustard.  Serve immediately.
