Note: Giardiniera is an Italian-American pickled vegetable mix consisting of cauliflower, carrots, celery, and red peppers. It can be found in Italian specialty stores or in jars in the international section of the supermarket.

Ingredients

1 cup mixed pitted Italian olives (about 3/4 pounds)
1 cup giardiniera (see note)
4 jarred pickled peperoncini, stems removed
2 tablespoons capers, drained and roughly chopped
1 medium clove of garlic, finely minced (about 1 teaspoon)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Procedure

Place olives, giardiniera, peperoncini, capers, and garlic in bowl of food processor. Pulse until roughly chopped, about six 1-second pulses. Transfer to a medium bowl, and stir in the olive oil. Allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
