"Dakos" is a popular appetizer of the island of Crete. A rusk (twice baken whole wheat or barley bread) is used as a base of this simple appetizer. If you can't find rusks you can toast thick sliced french bread (like a brushetta).

How to Make "Dakos" Tomato &Feta Cheese Appetizer

Step-by-Step

  1. Briefly wet rusk by holding them under running water or quickly dipping in a bowl of water. Drizzle with half of the olive oil and season with very little salt. Don't forget you'll be adding Feta cheese later. Set aside.
  2. Finely chop, dice tomatoes or press through grater. Spoon tomato pulp over dakos, leaving a "well" in the center for the cheese. Spoon the cheese into the "well" on top of tomatoes. Sprinkle with oregano and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Ready to enjoy!
  3. The amount of Feta cheese and oregano added really all depends on your taste. Also the amount of capers & Kalamata olives I suggested, add according to your taste.

    Variations: Rinced capers and Kalamata olives can be added
