Fresh Mozzarella Salad

This salad is very quick to make and tastes amazing; the chili adds an extra kick. I made this the other night for my mom and the boyfriend. We had this as a starter followed by barbecued prawns and sausages. For the chili flakes we ground up dried Szechuan chili peppers, but you could use any hot dried chili pepper for this recipe.
