From: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2011

If you're a fan of the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich—or even if you're not—try this unique fresh topping combo the next time you're grilling dogs. We love the crunch of carrot and cucumber, the fresh taste of cilantro and the tangy zip from a big squeeze of lime.

  1. Spread mayonnaise on bun and add hot dog; top with carrot, cilantro and cucumber. Finish with a squeeze of lime.
  • Tip: Not all hot dogs are created equal. Reaching for the right brand in the grocery store can have a huge impact on your intake of fat and sodium. For a healthier hot dog, choose one that's no more than 150 calories, has 3 grams or less of saturated fat and 370 mg or less of sodium.

Fun, fresh, quick and easy recipe for a change of pace. One key ingredient is missing, hot pepper. Slice up one jalapeño pepper and add it to your sandwich, otherwise it is too bland.
