Tomatoes with Oregano and Lime

This recipe calls for lime juice -- rather than lemon juice or vinegar -- to brighten the sweet flavor of summer tomatoes. We used heirloom varieties for their exceptional taste and vivid colors, but you can use any kind or size -- from the farmers' market or your own backyard -- as long as they are ripe.
