Smokehouse Cider Slaw Hot Dogs & Pickled Onion, Pepper and Cucumber Dogs (Dogs and Brew for Labor Day)

September 7, 2015

imagesHot dogs are having a celebrated moment. So for Labor Day I decided to open a beer and create some dogs for this celebration. Today I am alone, enjoying a quiet moment in my kitchen. Just me and my camera—concocting flavors—not knowing what the final outcome will be. I pulled out my mandolin and  slivered the farm fresh veggies of summer, and boom: something beautiful, magical, and new was happening. The first Dog is smothered in a Smokehouse Cider Slaw I created. For my other creation, I pickled some cucumbers, red onions and peppers from the farmers market. Try these out or create your own… as we bid farewell to summer and all its beautiful memories!      Peace…Britt
