Giardiniera Salad


My husband an I both love giardiniera.  For a quick and easy salad, I love to mix it in with heartier greens, some freshly grated Parmesan, and a vibrant vinaigrette that compliments the pickled vegetables.  This salad pairs nicely with Panini or pizza.


8 cups mixed greens, such as baby kale, romaine, and baby spinach

16 oz jar Giardiniera, drained

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

Honey-Balsamic Vinaigrette, to taste


Combine the first three ingredients in a large bowl.  Toss them together to distribute them.  Pour the desired amount of vinaigrette over the ingredients and toss to coat.  Serve immediately.

Serves 4-6
