This recipe couldn't get more "summer" if it tried—both in terms of what's in it (the season's ripest peaches, crunchiest cucumbers and tomatoes that require you to wear a bib) and how it's prepared (the grill and one bowl). It comes by way of Chopped champion and all-around food champion Lazarus Lynch's new cookbook Son of a Southern Chef, a glorious tome of all things Southern, Caribbean, colorful and delicious.
