Giardiniera is an Italian relish of pickled vegetables in vinegar or oil. Italian giardiniera is also called sottaceti ("under vinegar"), a common term for pickled foods. It is typically eaten as an antipasto or with salads. In the United States, giardiniera is commonly available in traditional or spicy varieties, and the latter is sometimes referred to as "hot mix". Giardiniera is a versatile condiment that can be used on a variety of different foods, such as bratwurst, bruschetta, burgers, pasta salad, eggs (omelets), hot dogs, tuna salad, sandwiches, and much more. In the U.S. it is not uncommon to use giardiniera on pasta or, in the Chicago area, pizza. In the cuisine of Chicago, an oil based giardiniera is used as a condiment, typically as a topping on Italian beef sandwiches, subs, and pizza. A milder variety of giardiniera is used for the olive salad in the muffuletta sandwich.
