Anatomy of a Chicago-Style Hotdog

ANATOMY OF A HOT DOG How Chicago 'drags it through the garden' Unless you've been living here for only a week and have spent most of that week under a rock, you're probably familiar with the Chicago-style hot dog. But what goes in to this one-of-a-kind culinary delight? Here's a handy diagram so you can I.D. all the right parts of the unique wiener.

DILL CELERY SALT Just a dash can make all the difference - don't forget it! .... POPPY-SEED BUN Firm but spongy, this bun is made to stand up to steam-heating. TOMATOES Two slices frame the sausage. MUSTARD Get that ketchup out of here. Yellow mustard is the only appropriate condiment for the Chicago Dog - most purists can't even stomach the sight of the "red menace." BELISH "NEON" RELISH The bright green sweet relish is a must-have for flavor and color. Without it, you just have a sad sandwich with little-to-no swag.
