Tomato Artichoke Heart Salad

by Cindy Rippe

This is such a delicious summer time recipe. If you are growing tomatoes this year, make sure and save this recipe for when your fresh-out-of-the garden tomatoes are ripe later in the season! It's a very versatile recipe, you could even use cherry or grape tomatoes. You can even change it up a little--make it more of a Greek salad by using kalamata olives and sprinkle some feta cheese over it.
