I hope you’re not getting sick of all these hot dog recipes! I know, 3rd one in a row, but hey, I love hot dogs, especially around this time of year when you can just throw them on the grill and get so creative with different kinds of toppings.

And with Labor Day right around the corner, Hebrew National hot dogs are a must. We’ll be stocking up the fridge with all sorts of goodies to make a hot dog bar for our end-of-the-summer Labor Day party. That way, every guest can customize their own hot dog to their liking. I’ll also have these pre-made Sriracha guacamole hot dogs and Hawaiian hot dogs with mango salsa for the indecisive folks. Either way, a hot dog party is perfect for summer’s last hurrah before the pumpkin and peppermint recipes start blasting in on Pinterest.

    What kind of vinegar did you use for the pickled carrots? And, does it matter how long they are pickled? (Is this something I could do ahead of time?)
