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.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 whole-wheat hot dog bun, toasted if desired
  • 1 grilled hot dog (see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded carrot
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon halved and thinly sliced cucumber
  • Lime wedge

Preparation

  1. Spread mayonnaise on bun and add hot dog; top with carrot, cilantro and cucumber. Finish with a squeeze of lime.

Tips & Notes

  • 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.
