Banh Mi Hot Dogs

This is my take on Banh Mi hot dogs. It’s simple and straightforward. Nothing fancy. There’s a great contrast between the vinegary carrots, the cold crunchy cucumbers, creamy mayo, and of course the raw heat from the jalapenos. The carrot and cucumber mix is really what makes these dogs so great. It is also great on sandwiches or even hamburgers.

Banh Mi Hot DogsFor a little extra kick, mix in some Sriracha with the mayo. Mmmmm good! Or if heat isn’t your thing, leave off the jalapenos and still enjoy some great Banh Mi hot dogs. Also check if your local grocery store carries Japanese mayonnaise. It’s a bit thicker and not as sweet as your typical mayo.

Also try my Big Kahuna dogs!
