Giardiniera is an Italian-style mixed pickle that typically contains pearl onions, cauliflower, hot peppers, cucumbers, carrots, and celery. You can find it in glass jars in the supermarket.
Stem and seed any whole peppers from the giardiniera and then coarsely chop all the giardiniera. Put the chopped vegetables in a medium bowl and add the olives, olive oil, parsley, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Mix well.
Make Ahead Tips
The relish can be refrigerated, covered, for up to five days
