My hubby is from NYC and missing home so I researched (going to Martha first! I knew she would have a good NYC hot dog recipe) and found this one. I made the onion relish without the tomato paste because I did not have it on hand so used a little bit of ketchup instead. Also I used about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar because I had not opened my bottle of red wine and did not have red wine vinegar on hand either. It worked great!!! I used 100% all beef hot dogs and toasted my buns (I had no cheesecloth either) just a little. My hubby loved it! It reminded him of home and the fall. A note: I boiled my dogs for a few minutes first, then grilled them. They were delicious. I definitely would make this again!
All I can say is WOW! I've never been to NY so I have nothing to compare to, but that onion relish is awesome!! I'll be making this whenever hot dogs are on the menu.
