I got this recipe from an old restaurant in Michigan- now closed for many years...
It was a buffet style family restaurant called the Sweden House, It was spelled a little different,but I do not remember the spelling.
A friend of mind worked there and gave me the recipe;it makes a big batch - great for parties and picnics as it doesn't spoil sitting out.You can keep it in the refrigerator indefinitely as it is pickled.
It's great on hot-dogs,burgers, ham hocks, chops, bratwurst, it is a great side salad.
Make the night before.
The longer this sets the better it gets... you will love it!
