Grilled Hot Dogs get a grown up twist with this fresh and tasty California Avocado Relish Recipe.
Friends, it’s starting to get to that part of the summer where my anxiety about school starting begins to set in. I absolutely love summer. Love love love it. I love having my kids home with me, spending the days with them, slow, al fresco dinners and lazy, lounging mornings.
I have a really hard time transitioning back to a school schedule, where everything is practically as opposite of our low key summer as you can get. After school sports and activities, spelling tests, reading logs, early morning wake up calls, and dinners scheduled down to the minute so we can all be home at the same time to eat them. It all drives me a bit nuts.
So here’s what I’m going to do… I’m going to try my darndest to ignore the fact that school starts back up in just a couple of weeks. I’m going to keep enjoying simple times and simple dinners… like these grilled hot dogs with California Avocado relish. I mean, does it get any simpler in the summer than a couple of plump hot dogs sizzling on the grill? It really doesn’t.
This California Avocado Relish recipe gives hot dogs a bit of grown up sophistication. It’s everything a grilled hot dog needs to up the status quo. Give it a try… I really think you’ll love it!
In the meantime, enjoy soaking up the last of these summer days!
