Russotti’s Dogs specializes in “Italian hot dogs.” But what, Melanie Wong wanted to know, makes them Italian? “Garlic sauce,” says the cart’s owner, Justin Russotti.
“The jumbo hot dog ($3.50) was grilled and then topped with a muffuletta-style olive and garlic salad from New Orleans,” says Melanie. “You can add more condiments: for me, a little mustard and pickle relish to add some tanginess. This is a great concept; the combination of flavors is absolutely fantastic.”
Russotti is at the Thursday evening Cotati Farmers’ Market (May to September), and is also available for events.
