Expert Tips

  • Pepperoncini peppers, also called Tuscan peppers, are a variety of chile pepper with a slightly sweet and spicy-hot flavor. They are most often sold pickled and are used in many antipasto dishes.
  • Look for pitted green olives at the olive bar in the supermarket or in jars in the olive aisle.
