Ingredients

1 cup diced carrots

1 cup sliced okra

1/4 cup salt

3 to 6 jalapenos, sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 stalk celery, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 cup canola oil

1 cup white distilled vinegar

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon pepper

4 hot dogs

4 hot dog buns, buttered and toasted

Directions

  1. Combine the carrots, okra, salt, jalapenos, garlic, celery and red bell peppers in a bowl. Add just enough water to submerge the vegetables. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
