      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!

      I preferred it with the dredging of flour, actually! The slices went lovely and crispy on the outside and stringy inside. I used normal flour with lots of coarse ground black pepper (love that pepper!). The balsamic dressing was beautiful with the cheese, but I wasn't sure how long to cook it down--maybe I needed to reduce it much more, because I found that the cheese was swimming in the dressing. It was delicious, nonetheless. Thank you for sharing such a simple yet drool-making recipe :)
