So I've got aioli/mayo/mustard/ketchup down. Now I'm after making the classic electric green hot dog relish. Has anyone made it? Care to share?
Thanks

    I made this a while back before a real (Vienna beef) hot dog place opened up. Now I just get it from them. However the owner said the real key to the color is to use blue dye #1, not green food coloring.

      Haven't tried this, here's a hot dog / hamburger relish recipe from 1962 that adds green food coloring:
