LUCY BURDETTE: Did you mutter when you read the title of this blog? Good lord, mango hot dog? Has Lucy lost her marbles? Has too much time on Duval Street fried her brains?
|Mango Hot Dog from Garbo's Grill|
So I wandered off into my own version of grilled hot dogs with a spicy mango relish. My guests, to be honest, looked at this with askance when it first came to the table. But every single eater was a convert by the end of dinner.
Good quality hot dogs (I used all beef, no nitrate dogs from Niman Ranch. My hub doesn't usually like natural hot dogs, but these were good!)
1 ripe mango, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 small red onion, minced
1/2 tsp sugar
couple of squeezes of lemon
Combine all the ingredients, mango to lemon.
Serve the salsa on grilled hot dogs, on toasted buns, with good mustard.
Hayley Snow will be reviewing this hot dog, eaten at Garbo's Grill, in KILLER TAKEOUT. She loved it just as much as I did!
