There are certain foods in the summer heat I crave: corn on the cob, tomatoes (which are finally coming in and are they tasty!), cantaloupe and refrigerator pickles.  Even people who scowl at pickles change their mind when they have just a small taste out of the jar.  Basically you can’t go wrong with pouring large amounts of sugar and vinegar over vegetables altering flavors into pure goodness.
