Garden Sass is an all-but-forgotten traditional American recipe for enjoying the freshest garden vegetables. Served over greens and bacon (as described in the related link) it is a unique first course, salad, or vegetable side dish. Alone it is an unsurpassed fresh vegetable relish.
I love nothing better than a big helping of Chicago-style hot giardiniera on a juicy Italian beef sandwich. Joe and I also like this relish on eggs, bread, sandwiches, mac-n-cheese, or with anything else we’re craving a hot/sour tang.
Alma paprika peppers preserved in an olive oil infusion of smoked Spanish paprika and garlic. It’s a bit spicy (not overwhelming), smoky and perfectly sweet.
This simple pickled salad is great on anything, you can also add a little crushed red pepper if you want some heat. Use it in a Cuban sandwich, over grilled hotdogs, pulled pork, lox and bagel, or grilled fish—the possibilities are endless. It keeps up to 4 months, but it never lasts that long.
