What Is Giardiniera? What Does It Taste Like?

Giardiniera is a traditional Italian antipasto of colorful vegetables pickled in vinegar, herbs and spices. The most common picks found in this vegetable mixture are cauliflower, bell peppers, carrots, celery and pepperoncini peppers. Italian giardiniera can be used as a flavorful garnish on cheese plates, charcuterie boards and antipasto platters, but also a fun and unique garnish for sandwiches, salads and more.

An Italian-American variation of this beloved snack is Chicago-style giardiniera. This famous pickled vegetable medley features many of the same ingredients as Italian giardiniera, but the process ends with a marinade of olive oil. Chicago-style giardiniera is often chopped like a chunky relish and then served as a topping on the iconic Italian beef sandwich, hot dogs and more.


How Do I Pronounce Giardiniera?

Giardiniera is pronounced jar-din-AIR-ah.


What Is The Difference Between Italian and Chicago Giardiniera?

Italian giardiniera is a medley of pickled vegetables served up on antipasto platters, charcuterie boards, cheese plates and more. Chicago-style Giardiniera is more of a condiment, chopped like a relish and served as a topping on sandwiches and hot dogs.
