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.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 ripe large tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 400g fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
