If you're a pickle lover who wants a chance to win some cash, check it:
The folks at the Vlasic company are sponsoring a contest, "What Does a Vlasic Do For You?" Your part is to tell how you "zest up a dish" with Vlasic pickles. For instance, you could wrap a slice of ham around a pickle spear. Simple, but effective.
"Submitting a photo of your creation to accompany your entry is optional but recommended," said a company spokesman.
From now through Aug. 31, go to www.vlasic.com and click on the contest banner to enter. Be sure to read the rules. Or mail entries - the more entries, the better your chance of winning - to "What Does a Vlasic Do For You?" c/o BHG, 546 Valley Road, Upper Montclair, N.J. 07043.
The grand prize is $1,000, with 10 finalists each receiving $100.
