    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

    Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

    1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, cheese, onion, oil, vinegar, basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss and chill for 1 hour. Serve on large platter.
