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.


  • 1 ¼ pounds assorted ripe tomatoes in all sizes, cut into wedges if large or halved if small

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)

  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh oregano


  1. Arrange tomatoes on a serving platter; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil and lime juice; sprinkle with oregano.
