Kathys Fried Halloumi Cheese With Lime and Caper Vinaigrette

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

A starter for 6 or light meal for 4 with French/pitta bread We had this as a delicious starter at a friends house, and I begged her for the recipe, I cant wait to try it!! I'm guessing at the amount of halloumi, but basically you want to have about four 'fingers' per person, as a starter. The dressing was marvellous! I love halloumi but have never tried making it, well, thats now going to change :D

I must agree with Baby Kato - this recipe will put you in taste heaven! Karen Elizabeth, this was a fabulous appetizer - and will definitely go down in my list of party foods (or anytime foods). It's easy to make and the vinaigrette is so, so good!!! Like Jubes, used a non-stick fry pan for this. Made for ZWT9 for team Gourmet Goddesses. Thanks for posting!
