I have been making this cherry tomato mozzarella salad for years! I was inspired by a salad like it that Walmart used to carry. It's incredibly easy to make, it takes less than 5 minutes to put together and then it sits in the fridge for four hours to let the flavors come together.
How to make Mozzarella Tomato Artichoke Salad
This tomato artichoke salad has just two packages of grape tomatoes (or an equal amount of garden fresh grape tomatoes), two cans or jars of marinated artichoke hearts (drained), and 16 ounces of mozzarella cheese pearls topped with Greek dressing, then seasoning with salt, pepper, and dried basil. Mix it up, cover, and refrigerate for four hours or up to overnight.
