Pickled Carrot and Daikon

  • 1 carrot ½ lb
  • 1 daikon ½ lb
  • 1 teaspoon 5 g salt
  • ½ cup + 2 teaspoon 120 g sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup 315 g distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup 250 g water

Sriracha Mayo

  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt


  • 6 hot dogs
  • 6 buns
  • 1 cucumber sliced
  • 1 jalapeño sliced
  • cilantro
  • Soy sauce


  • Pickled Carrot and DaikonPrepare the carrot and daikon. Peel and shred the carrots and daikon.
  • Mix the pickling juice. In a mixing bowl, mix together the salt, sugar, distilled white vinegar, and lukewarm water. Mix until the sugar and salt dissolve.
  • Pickle the carrot and daikon. In a pickling jar, add the shredded carrots and daikon until ¾ full. Pour in the vinegar mix until the carrots and daikon are completely covered in the liquid.
  • Cover the jars and pickle in the refrigerator overnight. The pickles can last up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
  • Sriracha MayoIn a mixing bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sriracha, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt until combined.
  • Hot dogs and bunsGrill the hotdogs. Heat up the grill on medium-high heat, place the hot dogs on the grill and cook until golden brown, around 5-7 minutes flipping halfway.
  • Toast the buns. Toast the buns in the oven or on the grill until slightly crispy.
  • Serve. Place the hotdogs in the buns, layer on the sriracha mayo, soy sauce and add the pickled carrot and daikon, sliced cucumber, and sliced jalapeños and enjoy!


  • Make the pickled carrots and daikon in advance. The pickled carrots and daikon taste best if you pickle them overnight. However, if you are in a pinch you can always pickle them for at least 1-2 hours in advance.
  • Preheat your grill. This is an important step to clean off the grill using heat. Moreover, placing the hotdogs on a hot grill will provide those gorgeous grill marks we all love and deserve on your hot dogs.
  • Adjust the sriracha mayo to your taste. Some people prefer a spicier kick to their hot dogs, whereas some people prefer a milder taste. You can adjust the levels of sriracha based on your flavor profile.
  • Storage Instructions. You can store the individual ingredients separately in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. To re-heat the hot dogs, you can either place them in the microwave or heat them up in the oven. The pickled carrot and daikon will last in a pickling jar for up to 1 month in the refrigerator.
