As soon as I saw this recipe on BHG.com I knew I had to this grill up ASAP! Around here we love hot dogs. The toppings on these Summer Dogs had me at hello.
What makes these grilled hot dogs extra special & summery? Its the wonderful grilled corn salad on top. There is also avocado ~ which is always a win!
I kept the recipe pretty much as is on the BHG website, but added a few small tweaks of my own.
Instead of tomatoes in the corn salad I added diced red pepper. I also added some teeny tiny pickles & pickled onions to the topping. That was my sons request!
These hot dogs are amazing for entertaining. You can serve ‘em loaded as seen in the photos. Or, you can create a hot dog bar & have the toppings separate so guests can pick & choose their own toppings.
Serve with a side of sweet potato or regular fries & some fresh fruit too.
