Cherry Tomatoes and Mozzarella Salad

Gosh I love tomatoes!  Only problem is they are really only fresh for a few months out of the year, but when ever they are in season I try to use them in as many places as I can.  with a bunch of left over cherry tomatoes, why not make a salad out of them.  I had some delicious purple, red, and yellow cherry tomatoes so the recipe was going to be simple.  Whip up a quick vinaigrette throw in some fresh basil and boom, I’ve got an amazing refreshing cherry tomatoes and mozzarella salad!
