Layered BBQ Salad With Kosher Grilled Hot Dogs

“Found this in Southern Living BBQ on Tour, April 2009 edition & tweaked it a bit! Use your favorite deli baked beans and coleslaw for a delicious easy meal that comes together in minutes. Serve with pickled okra, sliced jalapeños, caramelized onions, or freshly cracked pepper on top! Really delicious:)”
