Greek Dakos

Greek Dakos

Ingredients

  • 4 large round rusks
  • 3 large mature tomatoes
  • 8 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 150 g feta cheese
  • 10-15 black olives
  • oregano
  • salt

Instructions

  • Grate the tomatoes and drain all the liquids.
  • Pass the rusk under running water (very quickly) and place on a plate. Cretan rusks are very hard but you do not want to soften them too much. It should still be crunchy but easily breakable. Here you could add some salt.
  • Add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and let it absorb. (Please note that here in Greece we often add much more olive oil, but this amount works fine).
  • Spoon the tomato on top, covering the whole rusk and then add the crumbled cheese.
  • Drizzle with another teaspoon of olive oil, some olives and oregano.

Bon Appétit!
