Dakos salad takes first place in top 100 world’s best salads list


The Creten salad Dakos has recently taken first place in TasteAtlas’s list of 100 best-rated salads in the world.

A delicious specialty from the island of Crete, the salad consists of a dry barely rusk called paximadi, topped with crumbled mizithra cheese, chopped ripe tomatoes, olives, capers, oregano and good quality olive oil.

According to TasteAtlas, the salad was recognised for its fresh ingredients and for the culinary passion the Greek people have towards producing some of the best salads in the world.

This year, the list also included four other salad recipes from Greece, including the traditional Horiatiki salad, which came in 5th place, Horta salad, Patatosalata and Pantzarosalata.
