Giardinaria

OK, we've discussed Chicago flourescent green relish. Now how about giardinaria. Most major pickle makers put stuff in jars that they call giardinaria, but down in AZ there WAS (past tense intended!) a place run by a guy from Chicago that sold, among other things, hot dogs with the fixins he claimed were authentic. He had the bright green relish. But he also had some really good hot relishy stuff he called giardinaria but was nothing like what's in those supermarket jars. The veggies were chopped much finer and I believe it had some oil in it not unlike the olive salad for muffalettas. Anybody have a source for this (way) outside Chicago?

    This might be the product you are looking for:

    IL Primo Giardiniera Sandwich Dressing (oil based) http://www.imsauced.com/1ilpgia.html

    If not, here is another one (bigger chunks, but notice that the second ingredient, after peppers, is soybean oil):

    IL Primo Giardiniera - Marinated Pepper Mix - Mild (they also have a hot one, but oddly enough, its soybean oil is last in the ingredient list) http://www.wearehotsauce.com/product.jsp?Item_ID=1504

    Judging by the picture, that marinated pepper mix looks a lot like the stuff of my dreams. Think I'm gonna try it. Thanks.

    Ordered the mild pepper mix. The stuff I recall eating definitely had a kick to it, but given the mellow palates of most other diners in the place where I ate it, I doubt the owner would have risked the hot stuff. Well see, though.

    Got the Il Primo goodies today and they look right. Plan on having a hot dog in the next few days to try it.

    Why wait for a hot dog? Just eat some.
