Hot Dogs with Grilled Coleslaw – a Food & Wine staff favorite



Hot dogs with grilled coleslaw are staff favorite at Food & Wine magazine. With the first taste they became a favorite of ours also. They are perfect to serve after a morning of tennis or golf and are sure to please the men as well as the ladies.

The hot dogs and slaw can be grilled outside or prepared on a stove top grill pan. It takes only seconds to cut a head of green cabbage into eight wedges, brush with a little oil, and grill for about three minutes per side until slightly charred. Meanwhile mix equal parts good mayonnaise and cider vinegar in a large bowl, add a few chopped jarred jalapenos peppers with a bit of their juice, and stir to make a dressing. As soon as the grilled cabbage cools a bit, shred and toss with the dressing, season to taste with salt and pepper, and your slaw is ready.

Throw some hot dogs on the grill and cook until lightly charred. Toast the hot dog buns, top with hot dogs and slaw, open a beer, and lunch is ready in about twenty five minutes of minimal effort. It can’t get any easier than this. This easy recipe can be found on line at the Food & Wine site. Click here for the recipe.

  1. I thought I'd had ever form of coleslaw known but this is new. It sounds delicious! I'd never had coleslaw on a hot dog until I discovered the famous "Chicago" dog. Hope it will soon be warm enough to uncover the grill. We are still thinking hot soup!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  3. Sam,

    First off, I have never liked coleslaw. However, them darn dogs look so good, I'd pop the jalapeños in there and wolf 'em down, coleslaw and all. They look amazing! Especially since it is about 11:52 Am in Miami and I really need some lunch. All of a sudden I'm thinking hot dogs...Although, they won't be as good as yours.

    Thank you for your friendship, it has been my distinct pleasure getting to know you. Every award I get is coming your way! Cheers!

  4. I will admit to loving a good hot dog during the summer - and only when grilled. The addition of the grilled cole slaw sounds perfect. Don't you love spring/summer cooking and the ease? Hugs through cyberspace coming your way.

  5. I could just jump through the screen and kiss you, then eat one of the dogs! Jalapenos too, oh girl you know how to dress up a dish, and I see a lager, make room cause here I come!

  6. Boy, do those hot dogs look good. We can post all the gourmet dishes in the world, but post a picture of a great hot dog with slaw and the world is your oyster (so to speak). Now I want one. Hot dog, not oyster.

  8. Bonjour Sam,
    Oh this hot dag with slaw looks so delicious. I'm going to make this, France may be known for food but they don't have anything close to this!
    Hope you're having a good week,
    Mimi

  17. This sounds easy and delicious. It reminds me of the days when we used to go camping since I relate hotdogs to open fire pits and the great outdoors.

  18. Gorgeous photo of one of the great American foods! It's a food group all in itself!

    And oh my! That toasted bun, Sam. It is a necessity!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hmmm....grilled colseslaw?? That sounds really interesting! We may have to try that!

  20. Sam, congratulations on your well deserved awards :-). You know, you've made me hungry for a grilled hot dog. That normally would be fine, but it's not yet eight in the morning here in Eugene. Ah, well! I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  21. This looks like the greatest taste and texture combination! I just moved to CT and it seems to be the hot dog capitol of the US! Good thing I love them! I found you on Lazaro Cooks and I'm so glad I did. I'll be back soon and often!

  23. Let's hear it for the hot dog! I have to watch myself around hot dogs with creative toppings ... I run the risk of eating myself into a coma!

    ReplyDelete

  25. Congrats on your awards!

  30. Congratulations on your awards!

    These slaw dogs look amazing, but am I correct in recalling that coleslaw on hamburgers is a Carolina specialty? Oh, I'm having memory-induced cravings for these . . . 8-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is good grub and I love adding the coleslaw to cut through the saltiness and fat of the sausages....
    I have been without internet for a while, sorry I missed so many posts....

    ReplyDelete
  32. My all time favorite burger is Carolina style (mustard, onions, chili, and slaw) and that combo works great for dogs too.

    But I do eat just dogs and slaw sometimes.
