Sausage Dogs
with pineapple salsa / corn and green bean salad

Active: 40 min Total: 40 min

These are not your traditional hot dogs. We were in search of a bold twist on the classic grilled favorite so we swapped out ketchup for Sriracha mayonnaise and pickle relish for pineapple salsa.
Smarts: Use your favorite sausage for these "dogs." Pre-cooked or smoked sausage links will cook quickly since they just need to heat through, but raw sausage links are also great - just allow a bit more time to cook them all the way through.

  5. {stovetop}: When sausages are nearly done, toast hot dog buns.
  6. Give corn and green bean salad a stir and season with some salt and pepper.
  7. Fill hot dog buns with sausages. Top with salsa and Sriracha mayo at the table. Enjoy corn and green bean salad on the side.

Really liked the pineapple salsa! I used the leftovers on a salad. Subbed veggie sausage. I liked the green beans but it seemed like they were missing something.

Substituted veggie sausage, which always works out great. The sauce was delicious, and the pineapple was unexpected but worked out really well. The green beans felt lacking. I'd probably make them with butter next time.

We added the corn to the Paleo version, because we are trying to cut down the bread consumption, but not going strictly Paleo. I made a few mistakes along the way, but it still came out delish!

The sausage dogs were great, if a bit messy - I loved the salsa! The corn and green bean salad wasn't my favorite though.

Really surprised by the flavors in this. We used italian style chicken sausage, and I really didn't think it would go with the mayo & salsa. Very pleasantly surprised that everything went together so well! I used a mini food processor to chop everything up in to into bits. Ended up with way too much salsa though.
