Add a burst of color to any dish with the convenience of this tasty Castella giardiniera! Each jar is packed full of wholesome flavor and authentic taste. This giardiniera features a combination of mild cauliflower, carrots, celery, and red pepper strips. Similar to "chow chow," this Italian-style mix of vegetables is packed and preserved in vinegar to maintain freshness and flavor. Giardiniera is also called "sotto aceti," meaning "under vinegar," which is a common term for pickled foods in Italian. Whichever way this flavorful blend is used, it's sure to make a welcome addition to your sandwich shop, Italian restaurant, or pizza shop!

Giardiniera is commonly served with antipasto, salads, and pasta dishes. In Chicago, it is used to make Italian beef sandwiches with slowly roasted lean beef which is then soaked in juice, layered on Italian bread loaves, and topped with giardiniera. This healthy vegetable mixture is also great for tossing in pasta salads and sprinkling on vegetable pizzas. The combination of cauliflower, carrots, celery, and red pepper strips are sure to please all of your patrons who are looking for a light and nourishing side dish.

Since its start, Castella has been one of the largest importers and manufacturers of specialty foods in the United States. In 1992 they successfully partnered with the world's best growers in the Mediterranean and beyond in order to offer a variety of fresh products. From antipastos, cheeses, olives, and spices, Castella offers premium and authentic products at the best value possible.

    This giardiniera mix tastes great and is a great value for money. I just wish that the cauliflower would be cut up a little smaller, but otherwise will definitely be buying more again
    webrestaurant does it again! delivering fabulous products at great prices. our first one came damaged but customer support was on top of it! thank you for lovely product
    The Giardiniera is wonderful and we love the assortment of pickled vegetables that the jar has. A quick and easy way to have an assortment of pickled goodies at our catering events during cocktail hour.
    I absolute love this stuff very tasty prefect for restaurant's that use this much easier than making from scratch I will buy again and again
    What a great price for such a large sized jar! Not my favorite giardiniera. But if you're a diehard fan of the stuff, it's worth a try.
    Good flavor and nice color but a little heavy on cauliflower. Took awhile to get since the first was broken in transit. Would buy again though.
    This item is much better then the Italian vendor.The cauliflower is crispier.I wish they had this item with the free shipping.I would purchase this again.
    Giardiniera salad is always on the menu. There is a light hint of mild pepper, in this salad mix. We have saved time and money by stocking this mix in the kitchen.
    The Giardiniera is a great mixture of pickles vegetables that tastes great and make a great appetizer. They are a very tasty and look wonderful.
    we used to purchased this pickled vegetables from our local supermarket, for almost 4 times the price. Those vegetables are crunchy and very well packed.
    WOW! This is good stuff. Tasty. A little salty, but that is what giardiniera is. Super glad the bottles are plastic cause we dropped them twice already That is my only concern, the bottles are a bit awkward to handle (I have fumble fingers).
    great mix. alittle spicy but works well with finger foods. very colorful.perfect size for hosting.not for resale best used on relish platter for hosting dinners
    These gallon jars of Gabardine are nice and consistent way to add a pickled vegetable to any chartreuse or antipasto platter. I have had these vegetables keep on the shelf sealed for over a year.
    The Giardiniera is a great medley of pickled vegetables that is colorful and makes a wonderful display. Tastes great and well packaged for easy transport.
    The Castella Giardiniera vegetable mix is a great variety of pickled vegetables that are great tasting and very good in appearance. They are great for our appetizer trays with meat and cheese.
    A great mix of pickled vegetables that add the needed color to my antipasti tray. The vegetables taste great, but they are a tad soggy.
    it has a good amount of veggies in it but it is way too hot. To the point where people couldn't eat it. It is probably from having the pepperoncinis in it
    We appreciate your review, Jennifer! We are sorry you did not prefer this product, for recommendations please contact our Customer Solutions team!
    Spice up your salads and or sandwiches with this Castella Giardiniera. A good flavor, brightly colored and crisp vegetables. Time saving product, and reasonably priced.
    This was so bad, I dumped it in my compost pile. I expected the vegetables to be in vinegar. Instead all I tasted was the large hot green peppers that were in this vegetable mix. The cauliflower and carrots might as well have been hot green peppers. I like hot sauces, horseradish, mustards, and I put jalapenos on my sub sandwiches.....but I could not stand this. .
    We appreciate your review, Mary! If you ever have any questions about the product you are purchasing, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This Castella mixture gets my vote for sure. I had originally planned to use them in a recipe but quickly learned they are great right out of the jar!!
    We order our 1 gallon salad mixes in fours as they then get shipped in a proper box. They add extra seals around the lids and also place in bags for additional security. Great addition to your salad bar.
    This is a good product. There are nice big chunks of vegetables. Not all little crumbs.. it is a nice assortment of peppers, carrots and cauliflower.
    We use this Castella Giadiniera to add to antipasto salads. This jar has a good mix of pickled vegetables in there and are quite tasty. And they are not overpoweringly sour which is good. We like this.
    This is definitely similar to chow chow/ It can be added to shredded cabbage for hot slaw. This is popular in the American south but tasty all over.
    Got this for the Holidays Great when you want that extra to enhance your Holiday dinner and not take away from it and better than a salad Because you can keep this on hand when needed.
    We treat are customers to this as part of our relish tray. Many people asking where we got this awesome pickled veggies from. We added this to our standard platform on our buffet.
    These Castella Giardiniera, Italian pickled veggies were well worth the wait. The flavor is different from the brand we had been using--these taste fresher, in fact. We had trouble getting this product to arrive in one piece, due to an accident in shipping, but WebstaurantStore worked hard to remedy that, promptly sending out a replacement. Thanks so much!
