Greek Hummus and Tzatziki Hot Dogs
It’s National Hummus Day and I’m celebrating with an all American classic turned Greek! These Greek Hummus and Tzatziki Hot Dogs will liven up any Memorial Day celebration!
I’m betting your list of Top 5 Hot Dog Condiments probably doesn’t include hummus. Until about three weeks ago, mine didn’t either. My hot dog additions have always been fairly standard. A generous dousing of ketchup, a skinny squiggle of mustard, and a sprinkling of chopped onions and cheese if they’re around. You can keep the relish to yourselves. Pregnancy has changed me in many ways, but liking pickles is not one of them.
Truthfully, even that squiggle of mustard was a stretch for me for awhile. I was a ketchup-only kind of kid, and the fact that I now happily add mustard to hot dogs, sandwiches, and salad dressings is a small miracle.
Given my traditional hot dog eating tendencies, I’m not sure what possessed me to load one up with all the flavors of a Greek appetizer plate, but I’m so incredibly glad I did. This Greek Hummus and Tzatziki Hot Dog is flavorful, fresh, and a welcome break from boring ol’ dogs.
Let’s break it down for a sec. We start with an all beef hot dog. I tried this with both turkey dogs and all beef dogs, and much to my surprise I preferred the all beef dog. If you want to truly enjoy your hot dog experience, go for something quality.
Also, cook your hot dogs in the air fryer! It’s ridiculously fast and they turn out so juicy and crispy!
Once your hot dogs are cooked, load them with dollops of hummus. I love Sabra Hummus, and their huge variety of flavors makes it easy to customize your dog to your liking. The classic will do just fine, but I recommend going for the Jalapeno or Supremely Spicy if you want a little heat!
You can also make Homemade Hummus really easily and customize the flavors to your liking!
The hummus gives us the creamy factor. Now it’s time for the crunch! Pile on the cucumber, red onion, and bell pepper, which add freshness and that much-needed bite.
Finally, a nice drizzle of Sabra’s Greek Yogurt Tzatziki to cool everything down (that Jalapeno Hummus is no joke!), and add a little herby goodness to your hot dog.
The results? A seriously satisfying, gloriously messy, and (dare I say it) HEALTHY hot dog. Seriously, leave the ketchup and mustard behind this Memorial Day and dig into one of these Greek Hummus Hot Dogs instead. You will not regret it.

What a great idea! though I have to admit that I’m thinking of modifying it to use a Middle Eastern-style sausage (beef hot dogs just aren’t my “thing” 🙂
I think a Middle Eastern sausage would be awesome Laura!
What a fun twist for a hot dog! I have a batch of tzatziki in the fridge along with everything else sans hummus…I gotta buy some hummus!
These looked so good I had to try them – I’ve made them a few times this summer already. They’re so good!!
Never in a million years would I have thought to put hummus on a hot dog! I’m glad you got this genius idea because I totally know what I’m making for 4th of July.
I’m the opposite, I’ve always been all mustard on my dogs. Ketchup was meant for burgers, mustard for hot dogs. Up until recently, I’ve always been pretty boring with them too – mustard, kraut and that’s it. But this, this has me changing my mind! I need a grill and all the toppings!
Mustard and kraut? I wonder if that’s a regional thing…we usually reserve the kraut for brats around here but I may have to try it with hot dogs!
ME TOO. I hated mustard as a kid! I’ve slowly desensitized my taste buds to it,and now I put Dijon into like half of my recipes for a little bite. Hummus on a hot dog is a special type of beautiful madness. A delicious type!
Their Supremely Spicy hummus was my absolute fave! Girl, these dogs rock my world. Pinned.
Yes! Love that kick of heat!
Woman, you are giving me the worst hot dog craving EVER! 🙂
Oops! 🙂 Guess you’ll just have to go make yourself one!
I’m loving this idea!! My husband is always pestering me to make hotdogs and I think these would make both of us very happy 🙂
This is definitely a win-win!
