Halloumi Cheese with caramelised balsamic vinegar

READY IN: 25mins
Top Review by Missy Wombat

I really liked the dressing in this recipe. My tip is to remember to wash and soak the cheese in fresh water to remove the salty brine. The salt is pretty overpowering if you don't if you have the genuine Cypriot article. Another good recipe Poppy!
