Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/2 pound celery, cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 1 (1-pound) jar Kalamata olives packed in vinegar brine and olive oil 
  • 1 (11.5-ounce) jar pickled peperoncini
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar pickled hot cherry peppers
  • 1 (10-ounce) jar pickled imported Spanish Queen olives stuffed with pimientos
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar pickled Holland cocktail onions
  • 20 fresh basil leaves
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 6 sprigs fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 recipe White Cheddar Crackers, recipe follows
WHITE CHEDDAR CRACKERS:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup grated white cheddar cheese
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons cold water

Directions

Blanch the green beans and carrots separately in a large pot of boiling salted water for 4 to 5 minutes. Drain, and shock in ice water to cool. Put all of the ingredients in a large glass bowl. Toss to coat the vegetables evenly with the olive oil. Refrigerate for 8 hours. Serve in shallow glass dishes with the crackers.

WHITE CHEDDAR CRACKERS:

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cayenne, salt, mustard, and butter. Mix until mixture resembles a coarse crumb-like mixture. Add the cheese and mix well. Add the water a tablespoon at a time and let sit for 1 minute. Either using a fork or your hands, carefully press the mixture together to form a soft ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out on the floured surface into a rectangle 16 by 12 inches in diameter and 1/8-inch thick. Cut the dough into 3 by 1-inch strips. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until golden brown and crispy, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
