Tropical Hot Dogs with Pineapple Mango Slaw - a tropical twist on a classic favorite!

Don’t mind me, my mind is on a tropical island. But, because I am not actually going to a tropical island any time soon, I’ve been eating plenty of tropical fruit like mango, pineapple, papaya and kiwi. So why not add tropical flavors to an American classic like a hot dog? Plus, I love layering fruit over everything – salads, meat, dessert. Fruit is a refreshing and healthy addition to any dish. Tropical hot dogs with pineapple mango slaw are a tropical twist on a classic favorite.

Tropical Hot Dogs with Pineapple Mango Slaw - a tropical twist on a classic favorite! Just in time for summer!

I love making a double batch of this slaw to have on hand during the week. I also layer it over pulled pork sandwiches and pulled BBQ chicken. The pineapple, mango and orange creates a light and refreshing slaw. The diced jalapeno adds a little kick. And don’t forget to pile on the cilantro!

  1. Melanie @ Carmel Moments

    I never thought to top a hotdog with mango. But BAM! that has to be awesome.
    Have a marvelous Monday Ashley!

  2. Shashi @ RunninSrilankan(dot)com

    YUM! Love the sound of this pineapple/mango slaw – but how do you get the slaw from the bowl to the hot dog before digging in? I would have eaten it straight up from the bowl…sounds so so good!!

    • Ashley

      Ha, I would be lying if I told you that I didn’t dig right into the slaw first πŸ™‚

  3. Ashley

    Yummmm! That slaw! I’m pretty sure I would put that on just about everything haha Happy Monday friend!

  4. Natalie @ Tastes Lovely

    This hot dog sounds delicious! Kiiiind of obsessed with this pineapple mango slaw. Can you imagine how great this would be on tacos too? I’m going to Hawaii in August (Gahhh I’m so excited!) and I’m always ordering fish tacos with tropical salsas on top. But I should totally switch it up and put it on a hot dog. Love that salty and sweet combo : )

    • Ashley

      I’m so jealous that you are going to Hawaii! And yes, I have already layered it over pulled pork tacos!

  5. Christin@SpicySouthernKitchen

    I am in love with this slaw! Slaw on a hot dog is my favorite and the pineapple and mangos sound so refreshing!

  6. Jessica @ Jessiker Bakes

    Yum!! These sound delicious. Ashley, I notice you REALLY want to go to a tropical country – you should come to Jamaica when you can! I guarantee you’d love the North Coast especially Negril!

    • Ashley

      Haha, is it that obvious? I have actually been to Negril once before, quite a few years ago. But I am always up for another tropical adventure πŸ™‚

  7. Gretchen @ Two Healthy Kitchens

    I would need to make a quadruple batch of that pineapple mango slaw! I’m pretty sure I’d put that on every.single.thing I eat! Delicious!
    You really should take that vacation – and someplace tropical! πŸ™‚ Maui has lots of pineapple …

  8. Consuelo - Honey & Figs

    Mmmm I don’t usually crave hot dogs, but these just look too good not to! That slaw is calling my name. Oh girl, this tropical flavor combo must be the best thing ever!

  10. Beth @ bethcakes

    Oh, I love these tropical dogs, Ashley! When it comes to things like hot dogs and hamburgers, I’m a pretty plain person, haha. But I totally want to try this version now. Tropical everything, please! πŸ™‚

  11. Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes)

    Wow these hotdogs look seriously fantastic! I can’t even stand how delicious they look. Gorgeous photos!

  15. Min @ MJ and Hungryman

    Pineapple mango slaw..how could you say no? Now, papaya I haven’t been eating much of. Now I’m craving it! This slaw would taste amazing on top of everything..mmm…pulled bbq. Hope your week is off to a great start, Ashley!

    • Ashley

      Oh, I love papaya too!


    ouh la la Ashley! I just love all these flavors here. I love a good hot dog…honestly kinda picky about them. This recipe is so unique though. I bet the salty hot dog is the perfect balance with the sweet pineapple mango slaw. Thanks for sharing, pinned!! πŸ˜€

  17. ela@GrayApron

    What a great Summer twist on a hot dog!

  18. Olivia - Primavera Kitchen

    I am exactly like you I love layering fruit over everything, especially salads and dessert. But, I’ve never thought about topping hotdog with mango. Very clever πŸ˜‰

  19. John

    Wow, these look great! Being an older Chicago guy, I’m kinda stuck on Tomatoes, Sport Peppers, Onions, Pickle, Celery Salt, and nothing else on my hot dog. I have to admit these look wonderful.

    • Ashley

      Thanks, John! There is nothing like a classic hot dog, but I love switching it up every now and then!

  20. Amy @ Homey Oh My!

    I’ve been mad craving a hot dog lately. I’ve never tried on with this kind of topping, but I’m 500% sure I’d love it. I have a weakness for cilantro <3

  21. CakePants

    If you had asked me before seeing this post, if pineapple, mango, hot dogs, and cilantro go together, I would have been pretty skeptical, but after reading this recipe and seeing your gorgeous photos, I’m on board!! Looks fantastic – what a great way to fancy up a regular hot dog!

    • Ashley

      Sometimes the most interesting combinations make the most flavorful meals πŸ™‚

  22. Danae @ Recipe Runner

    I’m totally in love with this pineapple mango slaw on top of the hot dogs! Mango and cilantro are my favorites!

  23. Sarah@WholeAndHeavenlyOven

    Oh man. These hot dogs look EPIC, Ashley! I’m kind of obsessing over how amazing that pineapple-mango slaw looks. What an awesome combo! Gorgeous photos too! I love love the lighting and colors. Pinned!

  24. Sherri@The Well Floured Kitchen

    Super great idea to put the tropical slaw over the hot dogs! What a way to dress them up and dare I say “healthify” them a bit. My kids love pineapple and mango so I have to give this a try soon.

  25. Jess @ whatjessicabakednext.com

    The hot dogs sound and look amazing, Ashley! So vibrant and colourful- definitely what Summer food is all about! πŸ™‚

    • Ashley

      Thanks, Jess!

    These are the best kind of hot dogs for summer! I love all those tropical flavors. πŸ™‚

  29. Julie @ This Gal Cooks

    This salsa is perfect, Ashley. It really does make me think of being on a tropical island. Of course, I also love the cilantro that you added. It’s one of my favorite herbs and I use it in so many dishes. Pinned and sharing on FB tomorrow!

      • Ashley

        Haha, it’s kind of like salsa. You can spoon it into your mouth or eat it on chips. It tastes just as delicious πŸ™‚

  30. Joanne

    I truly wish I were on a tropical isle, but so long as I can’t be, I might as well be eating this slaw!
