We have spent so much time having fun this summer. Our days are filled with fun here in southern California and we enjoy spending time enjoying everything there is to do. We also spend time enjoying simple things like swimming and summer BBQ’s.
For those summer meals I don’t like to think too much about what to cook. Hebrew National All-Beef Franks are made from premium cuts of beef from the front half of the cow and I know that with Hebrew National I’m getting the best of the best. It’s why we serve Hebrew National at all of our summer BBQ’s.
To celebrate all the sun we’ve had here at home in California this summer, I wanted to create a fun dog and side dish that really described where we are from. Cool beach cities and light and fresh foods, Californians also like it spicy so just a little heat to kick it up a notch.
That’s why I created the sweet and spicy California dog! Made with fresh and tangy coleslaw and a cucumber and jalapeno topping, your entire end of summer BBQ will be delighted with this dog! The combination of franks and these toppings may not be Kosher.
Easy California Style Slaw
- 3 cups of cabbage shredded
- 1 onion
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 shredded carrot
- 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
- 1 TBSP sugar
- 1/2 TSP salt
- 1/4 TSP black pepper
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 chopped jalapeno
I am a big fan of simple salads so this is one of those side dishes that you just mix together and allow to cool in the refrigerator for an hour before serving.
I used the same cabbage and carrot mix and added a little sliced cucumber. Mixed in a bowl with a little jalapeno and rice wine vinegar and topped with a basil infused sour cream.
Serve the slaw over baby arugula and you have a fresh and delicious California style slaw and beef frank.
The best summer meals are spent with family. Making memories together is what it’s all about and I’m so glad that this summer we’ve taken the time to enjoy ourselves. With vacations, play dates and an end of summer BBQ.
What makes a Hebrew National kosher hot dog premium? It’s all about what makes the cut (And what doesn’t). We’re choosy about what goes into our franks – we use only premium cuts of 100% kosher beef from the front half of the cow and then choose the best from that. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or by-products. When your hot dog is Kosher, that’s a hot dog you can trust! For more summer fun with Hebrew National, visit facebook.com/hebrewnational.
