Lately I have been pondering the hot dog. I rarely put it on my meal plan even though burger night is a weekly event. Why not a hot dog night? Is it perhaps because I know it's terrible for me? Possibly. How about if I pile it high with vegetables? Now, it's a meal.
Banh Mi Hot Dogs
Adapted from Cooking Light Magazine
4 hot dogs
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp sugar
1. Thinly slice shallot, jalapeno, and cucumber. Use a vegetable peeler to make carrot ribbons. Place in a bowl with vinegar, water, and sugar. Allow to sit while you cook the hot dogs.
2. Before serving, drain vegetables. Top cooked hot dogs with a hearty scoop of pickled vegetables.
*Feel free to also top these dogs with some cilantro or siracha.
This will totally transform your next hot dog experience!
