Ingredients

1 1/2 cups finely diced mango

2 tablespoons finely diced red onion 

2 teaspoons rice vinegar 

2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced 

1/2 English cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely diced 

1/2 jalapeno, minced 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

8 hot dogs, butterflied

8 brioche hot dog buns

Unsalted butter, at room temperature, for brushing the buns

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1 cup crunchy fried onions 

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Mix the mango, red onion, rice vinegar, scallions, cucumber and jalapeno in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Grill the hot dogs, flipping them halfway through so both sides get grill-marked and a little charred, until heated through, about 8 minutes.
  4. Brush the inside of the brioche buns with butter. Grill until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Spread both sides of the inside of the buns with mayonnaise to your liking. Place a hot dog on each bun and spoon a few tablespoons of the mango mixture on the dog. Sprinkle with fried onions.
