Italian Marinated Vegetables are perfect for Summertime. They’re nutritious and delicious. This recipe is similar to giardiniera that I love to use on Italian beef sandwiches, spaghetti and pizza except that the vegetables marinated in more of a dressing than just oil and vinegar.

The types of vegetables you use is up to you. It’s best just to use whatever is in season at the time. You can make one jar or a put together a few jars for friends and family. The longer you marinade the vegetables the better the flavor.

This Italian Marinated Vegetables can be eaten by itself or used as a side dish to compliment any meat or poultry dish.
