Tomato Artichoke Salad

The salad above also has capers tossed in.
Came across this lovely salad recipe in a stack of old recipe cards. With the seasons turning to Spring soon there's nothing I love more than a fresh lovely salad. You can use this as a base, add to chilled pasta for a pasta salad or toss with baby mozzarella balls for a caprese like side dish.  

I think I'll be using this as a base the next time I make panzanella (an Italian bread salad).
