Instead of topping your hot dog with plain chopped onion, make a sweet and tangy relish with Vidalia onion, celery, and chopped pimento.
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 large sweet onions such as Vidalias, chopped (about 5 cups)
1/3 cup finely chopped celery
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1 2-oz. jar chopped pimentos, drained and rinsed
How to Make It
In a heavy saucepan, warm oil over medium heat. Sauté onions and celery until very tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in sugar, cider vinegar, salt, pepper, turmeric, pimentos and 2 Tbsp. water. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid has almost evaporated, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool completely.
I was surprised how tasty this is! I kept stealing tastes as it cooled. I made it to add flavor to my low fat hot dogs I eat for lunch. Great sub for the plain old ketchup and mustard. I think next time I'll do the relish and dijon mustard.
