Summer Dogs a better way to enjoy

sometimes you just have to have hot dogs!! Right? So here are some healthier ways to enjoy them

Summer Dogs

1  cup  grilled corn kernels*
1/3 cup  finely chopped onion (1 small)
1/3 cup  snipped fresh basil
1  tablespoon  mayonnaise
1  tablespoon  sour cream
1  tablespoon  red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon  sugar
1  recipe Grilled Hot Dogs
2 2/3 cups  shredded romaine lettuce
2  medium roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1  medium avocado, seeded, peeled, and thinly sliced
  Sliced fresh jalapeno chile peppers** (optional)
  Dry-roasted sunflower kernels (optional)


1. In a small bowl stir together corn, onion, basil, mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, salt, black pepper, and sugar.

2. Fill each bun from Grilled Hot Dogs with 1/3 cup of the shredded lettuce. Arrange tomato slices on one side of buns and avocado slices on the other side of buns. Place grilled frankfurters in buns. Top each frankfurter with about 1 tablespoon of the corn mixture. If desired, sprinkle with jalapeno peppers and sunflower kernels. Pass the remaining corn mixture.

From the Test Kitchen•We suggest using bratwurst with these toppings.
*Tip: •For grilled corn kernels, remove husks and silks from 2 fresh ears of corn. Brush corn lightly with vegetable oil or coat with nonstick cooking spray. For a charcoal or gas grill, place corn on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 15 to 18 minutes or until corn is crisp-tender and charred, turning frequently. Cool slightly and cut kernels from cobs.
**Tip: •Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
