Giardiniera / Muffuletta Topping

Giardiniera / Muffuletta Topping

Giardiniera means from the garden. This is one of my favorite sandwich toppers. This is a mixture of
clean fresh vegetables, chili’s for spice olive oil and a touch of vinegar. My very favorite is a hot roast
beef and cheese sandwich with giardiniera! Some other great ways I like to incorporate giardinaria with
scrambled eggs, almost any sandwich, with grilled sausage, just spread on good Italian grilled bread is
awesome, on hot dogs, burgers or whatever you want. I don’t use any real measurement and when I
make it I jar a few cases, enough to get me through the year. You can make a much smaller amount.
This will be for about 4 cups roughly.

  • About 2 red peppers, 2 green peppers, 2 yellow peppers.
  • 3 sticks of celery.
  • 3 habanero’s “optional”
  • About pound of green olives, pitted. And then rough chopped.
  • About ½ cup of capers. Rinse them at least once.
  • 3 peeled carrots.
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  1. To prepare this dish it’s a lot faster with a food processor. If not just chop it by hand. For this recipe ill assume you have a food processor.
  2. Clean and slice the peppers in ½, then deseed and cut into medium cubes.
  3. Slice celery and chop
  4. Rough chop the carrots
  5. Put the peppers, and carrots in the food processor and pulse until small chopped be careful not to chop to fine. Don’t make sauce.
  6. Add all the vegetable’s to a large bowl now add the olives, capers and fine chopped chili’s.
  7. Mix, add about ½ cup of red/or white wine vinegar and now about 2 cups of extra virgin olive oil or until the mixture is barely covered.
  8. Put in air tight containers and refrigerate. It gets better with time. Enjoy!
