Ingredients

  • ¼ cup salt
  • 1 cup sliced okra
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 3-6 jalapeños, sliced (depending on heat level desired)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 hot dogs
  • 4 hot dog buns, buttered and toasted

Directions

Combine salt, okra, carrots, jalapeños, garlic, celery and red bell peppers in a bowl. Add just enough water to submerge vegetables. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain and rinse the vegetables. In a clean bowl, mix the vinegar, oil, dried oregano and pepper. Add the vegetables and mix well. Allow to marinate overnight.
