The Mighty Mango Dog

Tired of boring old hot dogs? There’s no need to fear, Mango Dog is here!  This hot dog with mango salsa is not only flavorful but also healthy, especially if you make the turkey or tofu variety dogs.



I have posted a very similar mango salsa before (with tilapia) but it’s so good it’s worth posting again.  It compliments spicy or salty flavors very well, and sometimes I just grab a spoon and eat it by itself.  The lime juice keeps the avocados from turning brown so it lasts in the fridge for a couple of days. Yum yum!
