Radish Cucumber Relish


Ingredients:
1 "baby" cucumber, small dice
3 medium-large red radishes, small dice
3 tablespoons small dice onion
1 serrano pepper, minced

dressing:
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seed
sea salt
freshly ground pepper



Directions:
Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Place the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to evenly distribute. Allow to sit 20 minutes before serving.



My thoughts:
I'm not afraid to admit it, I love hot dogs. I normally am a sauerkraut purist but a woman can not live on kraut alone. I decided to mix it up by topping my (locally made!) hot dogs with this easy radish cucumber relish. It is crunchy and fresh, the perfect foil for a meaty dog. Just take care to finely chop the ingredients so they stay on your hot dog and not on your plate.
