St. Louis Slaw Dogs

Nothing says baseball more than a hot dog.  But why have a plain ol' hot dog with plain ol' ballpark mustard when you can have a Slaw Dog.  This slaw not only makes an outstanding side dish, but it's tangy, crisp flavor is the perfect compliment to a juicy hot dog.  It's very simple to make, with a "quick pickling" process.  Just a couple of hours in the fridge, and you're ready for the big game!
