These are great for snacking on or as a side to your lunch time sandwich. The ingredients did not list cauliflower but step two did so I added cauliflower. What DH liked was that this was a lighter flavored version of what I buy at the Italian deli (also too strong for him). Will enjoy keeping this healthy snack on hand, thanks for the post.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the vinegar, salt, oregano, bay leaves, garlic, olive oil, and 1 quart water in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the broccoli and cauliflower; cook for a minute, then add the zucchini, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and olives; cover and turn off the heat.
  3. Let cool to room temperature in the pot.
  4. Serve at room temperature or chilled, drizzled with some of the liquid and olive oil and sprinkled with lots of black pepper.
  5. Keep the mixture in its liquid in a covered plastic or glass container in the refrigerator for a month or more.
  6. You can serve with toothpicks, on top of greens or tossed with salads, on top of grilled vegetables, as a pickle alongside sandwiches.
