Method: 

Place beans in a large bowl and cover with 2 inches cold water. Let soak overnight.

Drain beans and place in a large saucepot. Cover with 4 inches water and add onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until beans are tender. Drain well.

Steam cauliflower and carrots until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain well.

In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt and chile flakes. In a slow, steady stream, whisk in oil until blended. Stir in pepperoncini. Add beans and vegetables, and let marinate at least 4 hours or overnight, stirring occasionally.
