While the iconic American summer hot dog is always delicious with mustard (or sauerkraut or ketchup if that's your persuasion), it's actually a great salty, meaty canvas for all kinds of condiments. For a recent summer party, we pulled inspiration from around the world and set out 12 different hot dog toppings, including a spicy Thai chili relish to a caraway-flecked antioxidant-rich slaw. Seems un-American to mess with the classics, you say? Nah. The only thing more American than a hot dog is innovating on a hot dog.
