Summer Dogs

Summer Dogs

I love grilling up some hot dogs during the summer.  Sometimes you don’t want to worry about dinner and just throw some dogs on the grill.  I was having one of those days, but I figured I should make use out of some produce I had in my fridge.  You can literally throw anything on a hot dog and not screw it up that much lol.

The Mango Dog

I thought it would be fun to try adding some fruit as a topping for a sweet and savory flavor.  I love mango salsa with tortilla chips, so it’s kind of the same idea.


Cubed mango

Diced tomato

Diced onion

Chopped cilantro

Chopped lettuce for an added crunch

The Greek Dog

I wanted to make something refreshing and I feel like tzatziki sauce adds freshness to a lot of dishes.  So here is The Greek Dog.


Chopped tomatoes

Cubed avocados

Alfalfa sprouts

Top with tzatziki sauce.


Tzatziki Sauce Ingredients

2 cups plain Greek yogurt

4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

1 large cucumber, grated or finely diced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Stir all ingredients together until combined.  Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 2 days.
