Confetti Giardiniera

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN Plus 1 week of pickling time

This crisp, tangy and colorful condiment requires no cooking whatsoever, but you do have to wait a week while the vegetables pickle.

  2. 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  3. 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice

  15. 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
