Always grilling hot dogs for your neighborhood BBQ? Then you’ll love this Hot Dog BLT salad for summer grilling season. It’s loaded with flavor, comes together in 1-2-3 steps, and is a hit with kids and adults!
You guys know I love putting my own twist on a classic dish. I love thinking up creative ways to change up traditional recipes and serve them to friends and family. It’s so much fun!
Today, I’m taking the classic grilled hot dog and making it into a flavorful, vibrant salad.
What?! A salad?? YEP.
No boring salads here, especially when they’re the main entree. I’m a big fan of chopped BLT salads (bacon, lettuce, and tomato, minus the bread), and I knew grilled Oscar Mayer Wieners would be the star of this dish.
I love salads for summertime because they’re SO simple to make, and you can add grilled toppings for flavor and protein. A complete meal!
In preparation for our recent BBQ, I stopped by Walmart to pick up the essentials: Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Oscar Mayer Wieners, Oscar Mayer Bacon, Kraft Singles American Cheese Slices, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner, plus some butter lettuce and cherry tomatoes.
My plan was to make a huge, flavorful salad with classic Kraft Macaroni & Cheese on the side. I started with a big bowl of chopped butter lettuce and topped it with halved cherry tomatoes. Next comes the chopped Oscar Mayer Bacon and grilled, chopped Oscar Mayer Wieners. Be sure to save some grilled wieners for classic hot dogs!
Last, mix up equal parts Heinz Real Mayo and Heinz Dill Relish for a hot dog-inspired dressing. Yum! Add chopped parsley if you’re feeling fancy, and you’re good to go!
For the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, I knew I wanted to make it “extra” and boost the flavor. So while it was warm, I stirred in a couple Kraft Singles American Cheese Slices and about 2 Tablespoons of Heinz Tomato Ketchup for added zest. Once it was all combined, I served it up with the Hot Dog BLT Salad. A crowd-pleasing meal for sure!
