Delicious and Unique California-Styled Hot Dogs with Shredded Cabbage and Sliced French Radishes

Sometimes you have a lot of great vegetables and not a lot of time to cook and prepare them ~ I’m here to tell you that’s A ok! 🙂 There are so many fun ways to utilize vegetables and one of my personal favorites is piling them on top of hot dogs! My family loves grilling in the summer and hot dogs are a lazy Sunday go-to. Instead of the typical onion, relish, mustard and ketchup, why not try this combination: organic Napa cabbage and French radishes from Taproot Farm, topped with sliced avocado, pickled jalapeño, toasted sesame seeds, black pepper and drizzled with Sir Kensington’s Special Sauce. YUM! So delicious in every way :)! You definitely won’t go back to the everyday hot dog after trying this ~ happy cooking and eating! 🙂
