In North American cooking, which "pickles" usually accompany hot dogs and pastrami on rye? (4,7)
RP the answer is 4 and 7 letters do you mean Dill Pickles?
Yes, I think dill pickles is the answer you're looking for, kev.
Although the clue is false. Hot Dogs, if pickles are involved at all, usually have sweet pickle relish. Dill pickles will be served, thinly sliced, on hamburgers, or cut in quarters or halves, on the side of a deli sandwich, such as pastrami. Usually, the latter are described as kosher dills.
