Chicago-Style Giardiniera

How to Make

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! This recipe is AWESOME! Growing up in Chicagoland and living in other parts of the country for most of my adult life, I have SO missed this type of giardiniera... ~ Carol

– In a separate bowl, add garlic, oregano, celery seed, crushed red pepper flakes and ground pepper to taste. Add oil and vinegar and whisk to combine.  – Add to your vegetable mixture. – Add chopped olives.


– Place it all into jars, ensuring the vegetables are covered with your oil mixture. – Refrigerate at least 2 days before using. A week is better!
