GREEN NOODLES.. Candelight's famous RELISH DISH

Nancy J. Patrykus


This Chicago Restaurant of 55th St is now closed. It was famous for good food for many years and the unforgettable GREEN NOODLE dish that was one or three relishes served to you before your dinner order was ready.
Actually customers would always ask for more helpings!
Including me!
The recipe was a secret one...and many of us miss this treat.
SOOOO I have tried to recreate this dish.After a few mistakes
I think I have now come pretty close to a clone of the original taste. I like it, and I hope you do also.

How to Make GREEN NOODLES.. Candelight's famous RELISH DISH


  1. Drain, rinse and cool noodles.
    In a bowl combine, oil, vinegar, honey, green food coloring. Mix.
    Then pour and mix over cooked noodles.
    Add onions and celery. Mix. Cover and put in refrigerator 3 hours, but better over night.
  2. This is a recipe you can play with the oil, vinegar, and honey to your liking.
    Maybe you would like to add a few chopped green olives, or a little green pickle relish.
    Myself, I like a tiny dash of Green Tabisco added.
    But then I like Green Tabisco..on my eggs also....
