About this recipe:This tastes like the salad that is served at a famous Italian restaurant chain in my area. It's perfect with fresh loaf of crusty bread. For the best flavour be sure to use fresh whole-milk mozzarella it puts the packaged varieties to shame. You can find fresh mozzarella in Italian delis, gourmet markets, cheese shops and some international grocery stores.

400g fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
1 large red onion, sliced
1/3 cup (80ml) extra virgin olive oil
