Mix the sour cream, milk, lemon rind and juice. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir through. Slice the mozzarella and place on a platter. Pour the sour cream mixture to cover the mozzarella. Cover it with cling wrap and set aside overnight or refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Halve the tomatoes (if they're large, quarter them) in a mixing bowl and add the red onion and herbs. Stir through and season with salt and black pepper.

Dish the tomatoes on top of the mozzarella cheese and drizzle olive oil over. Serve with ciabatta or French bread.
