Need recipe for pickled tomatoes

Hi everyone. I just finished picking my tomatoes for the season. I have a large amount of green cherry tomatoes left and would prefer not to waste them. Does anyone have suggestions on what I can do with them? I'd like to try my hand at pickling them, but I have not been able to find a good recipe. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks!
