Chicago Dog

“Dragged through the garden” describes the traditional Chicago hot dog, aka red hot, an all-beefer topped with at least mustard and neon-green piccalilli, and possibly hot peppers, raw onions, a pickle spear, and a dusting of celery salt. A poppy-seed bun is traditional. Ketchup is forbidden.
