What Is Hot Giardinera?

Giardinera brings to mind an image of an Italian mother, artfully pickling vegetables from the garden to use as an antipaso or salad.  As with any great food, Americans, in this case, Chicagoans, over several generations have found "hot giardinera" and its less spicy cousin, "mild giardinera" to be so delicious and versatile, that it is gradually moving from a Chicago staple on Italian Beef sandwiches, to a nationwide essential for pizza parlors, hot dog stands and even gourmet fine dining -- it's that good!  The pickled cauliflower, carrot, celery and hot peppers in oil provides crunch and texture that takes recipes to the next level.
