This is a giardiniera with mostly vegetables from my garden but, unlike most giardiniera recipes, it does not contain celery. Depending on the type of chile pepper you are using, you can make the giardiniera as hot or mild as you like. Note that this giardinera is a quick refrigerator pickle and not for canning; it should be eaten within a couple of weeks. The yield varies depending on the size of the vegetables you are using.

If you don't have fresh oregano sprigs, you can use dried--just add 1 teaspoon to each jar.
