Spicy Pickled Summer Vegetables

Quentin Bacon

For extra color and variety, add wax beans, hot peppers, haricots verts, icicle radishes, or pole beans. A wide-mouth jar makes pickling a snap--the vegetables are easier to slide inside. Prep: 10 minutes; Chill: 4 hours.

Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings
