Bring a small saucepan filled with water to a boil. Add hot dogs and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 170°F. If desired, warm buns in microwave for 10 seconds or toast in a pan. Nestle each hot dog into a bun.

Arrange cucumber slices along one side, tomato wedges on the other. Top with mustard, pickle spear, sport peppers, onions and relish. Add a fine sprinkle of celery salt and your dog is ready to enjoy.
