The name literally means "from the garden" in Italian. I love these. I can almost eat a whole jar for lunch or dinner (well, at least half a jar). A perfect accompaniment to any meal as a condiment, appetizer, or side dish.

How to Make GARDINIERA--AKA PICKLED VEGGIES (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. Dump vegetables into large glass bowl, sprinkle in salt and stir until well mixed

    Add enough water to cover vegetables, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 12 hours

    When ready to assemble, remove from fridge

    Drain the water and then rinse the veggies in cold water to remove excess salt

    Return veggies to large bowl
  2. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, celery seeds and pinch of black pepper.

    Add the vinegar to the bowl and stir until combined, then slowly whisk in the canola oil

    Whisk until well blended

    Pack the vegetables snugly into mason jars and top with oil and vinegar mixture

    Cover and refrigerate 48 hours before using.

    Will last 2-3 weeks in refrigerator.
  3. SUBSTITUTIONS/ADDITIONS:

    Jalapenos may be substituted for serranos
    Asparagus can be used instead of celery
    5-6 cherry tomatoes halved may be added

    NOTE: IF YOU NEED TO ADD MORE VINEGAR/OIL MIXTURE TO COMPLETELY COVER VEGETABLES, THE RATIO SHOULD BE 1 TO 1. 1/2 CUP OF EACH MIXED INTO THE VEGETABLES WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BE SUFFICIENT.
