WHO I MADE IT FOR?
I was inspired to make this after reading this blog entry. 6/4/15: I made this for Ash, Pat, Kelsey, Dave, Mark and Jason. Unfortunately, my grill was out of gas so I used the oven for the hot dogs and buns. I found mini hot dog buns at Whole Foods!

INGREDIENTS
Hot dogs (1 package, ~8 hot dogs, cut in half if you have mini buns)
Buns (8 buns, or 16 mini buns)
Mayo (1/2 cup)
Sriracha (2 tablespoons, more if you want it spicier)
Cucumber (deseeded, cut into thin strips)
Jalapenos (2, sliced, with seeds)
Cilantro (~16 sprigs)
Carrot (1 cup, julienned)
Daikon (1 cup, julienned)
Rice vinegar (1/2 cup)
Sugar (1/4 cup)
Water (1/4 cup)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine carrot, daikon, rice vinegar, sugar and water in bowl. Allow to sit in fridge for at least an hour. This is the slaw.
  2. Combine mayo and cilantro. This is the spicy mayo.
  3. Cook hot dogs and warm up buns.
  4. For each bun, add strip of cucumber, slaw, spicy mayo, hot dog, and top with cilantro and jalapenos. Ta-da.

BOTTOM LINE: Easy way to jazz up hot dogs.
