Pinzimonio's dish of friendship

Ingredients for 4 people: 

1 kg of mixed vegetables (fennel, artichokes, carrots, celery,etc.); 4 bowls containing plenty of Pantaleo extra-virgin olive oil; salt and pepper to taste.

Begin with the more delicate vegetables , and then move on to the tastier and more rustic ones, covering the vegetables with plenty of oil, because...

... because the pinzimonio is a feast to enjoy in good company and when the oil is excellent it should be enjoyed to the full and... in unlimited quantities !!!
