Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Grill the pickle slices over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a work surface to cool, then finely chop.

  • In a medium saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onion and a generous pinch of salt. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 minutes. Add the vinegar, sugar and mustard seeds and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pickles; let cool completely. Fold in the parsley and season with salt.

  • Relight your grill or heat the grill pan. Grill the hot dogs over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve the hot dogs in the buns with the relish.
