This recipe is a lightened interpretation of a Southern summer staple. Use whatever varieties of colorful tomatoes you find at your local market. Cherokee purple tomatoes add unique flavor and color to the plate, if you can find them. Outside of the South, black-eyed peas are a fine sub for lady peas, and okra is a regional delicacy that's optional in this dish.
