In place of overly sweet store-bought relish, Justin Chapple grills dill pickles, then combines them with onion, vinegar, mustard seeds and parsley for a smoky, well-balanced relish with delightful pops of mustard seed.

How to Make It

Step 1    

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.

Step 2    

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. 

Step 3    

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.
