Recipe for Dakos – Greek Style Bruschetta with Tomato and Feta

Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Dakos – Greek Style Bruschetta with Tomato and Feta

Dakos is a popular dish served regularly on the island of Crete. Rusks, which are hard, toast-like wedges of bread found regularly throughout the island, may be a bit hard to come by outside of Greece. If you don’t have access to specialty shops where you can purchase traditional Cretan rusks, use thick slices of extremely dry toast made from whole grain bread, instead. Just divide the filling evenly amongst the toast slices. It’s traditionally served as a mezze or can even be made into a simple, hearty meal.

Dakos Ingredients:

  • 1 large rusk, 7-inches in diameter
  • Greek olive oil, to taste
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cored and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound feta cheese, crumbled into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons dried Greek oregano

Directions:

 

Brush the top of the rusk with olive oil – use as much as you want!

Add the tomatoes to a large bowl with the minced garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix gently. Pour the tomato mixture over the rusk or divide evenly amongst the toast slices if you needed to substitute.

Add the crumbled feta cheese over the tomato and sprinkle with oregano. Let stand for five minutes before serving to soften. Drizzle the top with more olive oil, if desired.
