Chicago-style dogs are my favorites but not something you regularly find on street corners in Texas. ;-) This salad reverses the order and piles veggies up high underneath the dogs. Recipe adapted from Food Network and Rachael Ray

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In the bottom of a large bowl, combine mustard, vinegar, sugar, and about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  2. Add the onions, cabbage, romaine, tomatoes, and pickles and toss the salad.
  3. Season with celery salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add in remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil then arrange the sliced dogs in a single layer. Sear them a couple of minutes on each side. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  6. Mound up the salad on plates, top with seared dogs, and serve.

Wow what a fun salad. My teens were dubious, but every bit disappeared by the end of dinner. Next time I will probably add more celery salt, it really adds the Chicago touch. Thanks!
