 Giardiniera is traditionally used to top Italian Beef sandwiches, but why stop there? This spicy combination can be used in any number of ways.

  • 2 green bell peppers diced 
  • 2 red bell peppers diced 
  • 8 fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced 
  • 1 celery stalk, diced 
  • 1 medium carrot, diced 
  • 1 small onion, chopped 
  •  1/2 cup fresh cauliflower florets 
  •  dash salt
  • cold water
  • 1 cup white vinegar 
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano 
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 1 (5 ounce) jar pimento-stuffed green olives, chopped 
In a large bowl, combine all of the vegetables. Add a dash of salt and cover with cold water. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain veggie mixture and rinse. In a separate bowl, combine garlic, spices and olives. Toss to combine. Add vinegar and oil and stir well. Combine both mixtures together and cover. Refrigerate for at least 2 days before using.
