Traditional Greek Recipes: Dakos

·

A traditional veggie dish from the island of Crete, perfect for a light dinner! The secret behind the perfect Dakos is to use juicy, fresh, organic, on the vine tomatoes as they are the key ingredient that brings this dish to life.

My Greek Dish shows how you can make this traditional Cretan rusks with tomatoes and feta cheese dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 large round barley rusks
  • 3 large mature tomatoes (pilled and mashed)
  • 8 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 150 g feta cheese (5.5 ounces)
  • 50g myzithra or ricotta cheese
  • 10–15 black olives
  • 1–2 tbsps capers
  • oregano
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

Method

  1. Moisten the rusks (paximadia), with 4 tbsps of water each, and drizzle with the olive oil.
  2. Use a grater to grate the tomatoes, into a colander and leave for 5 minutes to drain.
  3. Crumble the feta cheese and myzithra (soft cheese) with a fork, or grate it with a grater.
  4. To put the dish together, spread the grated tomato on the rusks and add the crumbled cheese. Top with the olive oil and capers. Sprinkle with the oregano and drizzle with some extra olive oil.
