Suggestions: If camping, can roast hot dogs on a stick over an open fire, until dogs are cooked through.

Serves: 8 person(s)
Yield: 8 x hot dogs

Preparation Time: 8 mins
Cooking Time: 12 mins


    1 cup finely chopped tart green apple
    2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1/2 cup honey mustard
    8 turkey franks
    8 hot dog buns (whole wheat, if available)


    SALSA: Toss chopped apple with fresh lemon juice to prevent apple from turning brown. Add mustard and mix well. Cover and chill until meal time (or put in cooler).

    HOT DOGS: Preheat a gas or charcoal grill for the direct grilling method, using medium heat. Place hot dogs on grill rack, about 4 to 5 inches from the heat. Cook hot dogs over direct medium heat to an internal temperature of 165F for 10 to 12 minutes.

    During the last 3 to 4 minutes, open hot dog buns and lightly toast them over indirect heat. Place hot dogs into heated buns.

    Serve Apple Mustard Salsa atop hot dogs.


    Top with additional mustard, if desired (allow for extra sodium).
