fresh red shiso and . . . cucumber pickles?

I got a bunch of fresh red shiso at the farmer's market, and I'm looking for suggestions.

Yukari, are you still out there?
Can I use fresh to make cucumber pickles? I read your excellent post from last year about a multitude of shiso ideas.

I'm also making a shiso-lemon dressing for edamame (from 101cookbooks.com)
and if I had the ingredients, I'd try shiso kimchi.

TIA

    found an informative piece on japanese pickles while trying to answer my own question online . . .
