Good crisp veggies - super convenient for company since the dish can be made completely ahead of time. Omit the green onions and garlic - they have too much of a bite, since they are never cooked but only pickled in the vinegar! Overall, this is much less vinegary and salty than commercial giardiniera, which is a good thing. Also great at dinner with pork and mashed potatoes, which cut the bite from the vinegar.
Good, next time I think I would give the veggies a quick steam or boil and chill down. A little strong on cider vinegar....but still were very good
Loved the mix of veggies in this but thought the marinade was too sweet.
I did not care for this recipe. It was too stong with vinegar and the vegies were too crisp. To make it more acceptable to my taste, I microwaved the dish for a good 6-7 min before serving to "cook" the vegetbables. I also added some sugar to "tame" the vinegar.
I make this all the time- for company and when I just want something low calorie to snack on. Very tasty.
