Have you ever tried giardiniera? If not, you must introduce yourself to this unique Italian condiment! Giardiniera is an Italian word that roughly translates to “from the garden,” and when you open a jar of this delectable condiment, you’ll understand why. A typical Italian Giardiniera is made from a blend of summer vegetables including bell peppers, celery, carrots, pitted olives, cauliflower, gherkins, and spices. The traditional Italian style is usually pickled in vinegar, while the Chicago style (which also includes hot or mild short peppers) is marinated in an oil base, typically olive or soybean oil. The result is a colorful, flavorful relish that you can enjoy all year long.

Traditional Italian giardiniera hot is a common antipasto, served with meats and cheeses, but it is a versatile condiment that can be used for everything from sandwiches to omelettes to pasta salads. And the Chicago-style giardiniera is a common topping on beef sandwiches, pasta, and pizza. It’s even versatile enough to use as the olive salad in a muffuletta! You can service these sliced, assorted vegetables as a condiment, add them to salads, or just enjoy them as a healthy snack option. Or try it on pizza or bruschetta, or with grilled meats, or diced up and added to your tuna or potato salad. There are almost no limits to the ways you can use this marvellous condiment!

A traditional way to preserve and keep summer vegetables in Italy, giardiniera migrated to the US with Italian immigrants to the Chicago area, where it’s been a long-time staple. But now this delightful, versatile condiment is becoming increasingly popular across the US and Canada. And fortunately, it’s now easier than ever to try it yourself by ordering from Sonoma Farm. Our unique Chicago-style giardiniera is available in both mild and hot varieties, marinated in high-quality extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with herbs or (for the hot variety) with chilis, onion, and garlic.
