Your favorite classic hot dog is topped with pineapple mango slaw for a tropical twist! Perfect for summertime grilling!
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.
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!
