I've been making quick pickles or refrigerator pickles for years. I love them with a tuna fish pita or a wrap. But they can go with so many other dishes. Put them on a hamburger, or with our pulled pork sandwich. They are terrific on grilled fish as well. I recommend making them the day before if possible. 24 hours in the fridge just gives them even more flavor. Remember, these are meant to be eaten within a few days. They are not the long term pickles that you get in the store. So make them, and enjoy!
