Salsa Hot Dogs

Mmmmm. Boy oh boy. Salsa hot dogs. Mighty darned tasty. Like a hand-held serving of nachos. As spicy as you want it to be depending on the salsa you use. Of course, like nachos, you can add anything else you want. Like pickled jalapeno slices. Or shredded cheese. No matter what you do, these are great. I love the cool sour cream and tomatoes with the hot beef dogs and the spicy salsa, along with the crunch of the lettuce.

Salsa Hot Dogs

These were the perfect dogs to enjoy outside on the deck on a beautiful spring day.

Also try my sandwich roll hot dogs. They’re different.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Cantaloupe Salsa

I always stock up on pork tenderloins when they go on sale. They’re so easy to grill, and they can take on so many great flavors. I topped this marinated grilled pork tenderloin with cantaloupe salsa. The cool salsa complimented the juicy, tender tenderloin perfectly.

If you don’t want to go thru the steps for making your own salsa, just grab your favorite store-bought version at the store. I would recommend a thicker, chunky salsa. It’ll hold up better with the pork. Although it’s obviously not cantaloupe, Mrs Renfro’s peach salsa is fantastic with grilled tenderloin.

Also try my grilled pork tenderloin with a wonderful cherry salsa.

Cantaloupe Salsa

This is great salsa. Tired of the same old tomato-based salsa? This cantaloupe salsa will cure you! You could serve it with chips, though you might want to chop the cantaloupe a little smaller. Or do as I did and serve it over a fantastic grilled pork tenderloin.

I liked the chunkier pieces of fruit in my cantaloupe salsa when served with tender, juicy pork tenderloin. Smaller pieces would’ve been lost in the dish, I think.

I serve a similar dish but use a cherry salsa instead. Either salsa pairs perfectly with the pork.

Add a little minced jalapeno or serrano for an extra kick!
