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.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.
