Relish:

In a medium saucepot combine the cucumber and red pepper with the remaining relish ingredients. Cook over medium-low heat until thick, about 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature. This will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

Onion Sauce:

Heat the 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. In a small bowl whisk together the remaining sauce ingredients. Add to the pot with the onions along with 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until thick, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. This will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

Hot Dogs:

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add hot dogs and cook for 8 minutes, turning after 4 minutes. While the hot dogs are cooking, light brush the buns with melted butter and arrange on a sheet pan. Broil until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. .

Put the hot dogs into the buns, top each with 2 tablespoons of the spicy onion sauce, 2 tablespoons of the relish and some mustard. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.
