I love fried halloumi cheese. We can buy white balsamic condiment, but I don't know what to suggest as a substitute if you can't get it.

I had a block of Haloumi and wanted to make something that reminds me of my mums cooking. I made this for brunch and it was very yummy. I used dark balsamic vinegar and used baby capers as it was all I had at home. Thank you Jan

We've just found a source for halloumi in our town and we had to try this recipe. We usually grill halloumi, but now fried halloumi is our new favorite. We served it over greens, and it was just great.

Excellent, excellent appetizer! Full of bright, fresh, bold Med flavours. I could not find white balsamic vinegar and used the regular (dark) balsamic. It did darken up the appearance of the dish, but the taste was fabulous. For better visual appeal, I would use the white. Loved the addition of capers. A real winner.
