We absolutely love a good Chicago style sandwich dripping with ooey, goeey cheese and giardiniera. If you’ve never heard of giardiniera, it’s pickled vegetables in spices, oil and vinegar.

They look so colorful and sound tasty! Grilling them is great because it doesn’t heat up the house during a hot summer day.
