Are you sick of hot dogs yet? I sure hope you aren’t! Honestly, when I decided to do the 2nd Annual Hot Dog Week, I intended to keep it at 3 recipes, since I’ve only been posting 3 recipes a week. But I couldn’t stop myself.

I actually had been thinking up ideas, and was hitting a brick wall. For some reason, I was having a hard time even coming up with the 3 recipe concepts. But then I sat down one night to really hash it out. And what I ended up with was a list long enough to keep me busy into probably the 5th annual hot dog week. So yeah, I had to go with 5 days, and I’m already planning next year. 🙂

Today’s hot dog was inspired by the Thai Chopped Chicken Salad I posted a couple months back. I couldn’t stop thinking about how well it would translate into a hot dog. And I was right. Instead of a salad, I made a slaw of sorts, and then topped that with the peanut sauce (which is seriously one of my favorite things ever. I could eat that stuff with a spoon). Then of course, you need a little crunch from some chopped peanuts, and the cilantro just rounds the whole thing off. These were some messy dogs to eat, but it was totally worth it. They are quite mild – no spice to them – but if you love spice, I think you could totally add some chiles in there and it would be fabulous.

Now I think I need to figure out another recipe I can throw these Thai flavors into!
