Here’s a plan for a great BBQ dinner. Hop on over to the health food store and buy some healthier chicken and beef hotdogs with no added nitrates  (pictured below). Stop off at a good bakery and purchase the most delicious rolls you can find and some potato knish. Then make a slew of salads, starting with Mango Cilantro Red Onion Salad.
