It’s summer time! That means a lot of time spent around water activities and outdoors, as much as we can! Especially in the evenings when the sun is setting…we find ourselves eating out on our front porch a lot, wandering around the property/garden or even going on a walk around our little neighborhood.
All three of us love being outside! So on the flip side it seems like we grill out quite often…not to mention I’m always looking for easy meals so I’m not missing out on family time or slaving in the kitchen anddddddd something the mister loves to do too. Which brings me to my next thought…
We are all american, through and through. Since we love to grill out we also love hotdogs! HOLD ON though… I’m super picky with my hotdogs…my husband on the other hand is not so much and I cringe!!!!! So if I’m eating them, I’m picky! Thanks to Hebrew National® Franks they’ve got me covered!!!! So I call myself a hotdog snob, and I’m ok with that!
You could WIN!

When I first went to Maine (four years ago when my husband and I got engaged)…at their family camp, we spent all of our time outside, on the lake, relaxing and eating yummy food! So one night on the menu was to grill hotdogs… BUT! My mother-in-law pulled out her homemade hot dog relish…I obliged and now I look forward to that every year we go back!!!! She so kindly shared this recipe with me and we’ve made once, it but it’s just not quite the same…she just has the touch!
Has anyone else had Green Tomato Relish on their hotdogs? Thankfully this recipe is for a big batch…so if you are feeding a crew, you are covered!
