Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks—with this salsa duo.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 10 mins

  • 2 hass avocados
  • Salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes
  • 3 slices pickled jalapeno chiles
  • 8 soft, small oval whole wheat dinner rolls
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 12 ounce package  jumbo beef franks or knockwurst
  1. Preheat a grill to medium. In a small bowl, mash the avocados until smooth. Season with salt.
  2. Using a food processor, finely chop the garlic. Add the tomatoes and chiles and process for 5 seconds. Season with salt.
  3. Split the rolls, leaving a long edge attached, and spread the butter on the insides. Place the franks on the grill, cover and cook, turning, until lightly charred, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place the open rolls butter side down on the grill, cover and toast until lightly golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Cut each frank in half crosswise and place a half in each roll. Spread the avocado mash down the length of each frank, then top with the tomato salsa.
