Chicago Dog Salad

Chicago Dog Salad

When I first saw all the ingredients for this salad I was a bit skeptical but then I tried it and I am sold. I really enjoy salads that you don’t need store bought dressings to enjoy. Try this crazy salad and see what you think!

  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp vinegar, eyeball it
  • 1 rounded tsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz of shredded cabbage, bok choy or kohlrabi
  • 1 romaine heart, shredded
  • 2 vine ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 3 large half sour or garlic pickles, chopped
  • Salt and pepper

In the bottom of a large bowl, combine mustard, vinegar, sugar, and about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add the onions, cabbage, romaine, tomatoes, and pickles and toss the salad. Season with salt and pepper, adjust seasonings, and reserve.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add in remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (1 turn of the pan) then arrange the sliced dogs in a single layer. Sear them a couple of minutes on each side. Remove to paper towels to drain.

Mound up the salad on plates, top with seared dogs, and serve
