"Hot Dog Relish" is yellow and comes in jars with a label calling it
For relish to go ON hotdogs, I prefer sweet green relish or as some
folk call it "chow chow". (Of course OTHER folks say Chow Chow is
finely chopped pickled mixed vegetables including cucumbers, peppers,
cabbage . . . you know, the stuff Chicago folks call Giardinera - hot
or mild, not sweet.)
That red, tomatoey stuff is Hamburger Relish.
