May is here and the temperature is rising, so this post is about a delicious and refreshing appetizer; the one and only Traditional Cretan Dakos (or Ntakos). It is a popular Greek dish, also known as koukouvayia and it is a simple meze that will accompany your ouzo or tsipouro!
Simplicity is what this food is about! Fresh, vegetarian, light and, above all, yummy. This dish can be enjoyed on its own, as a light lunch or can be part of a feast that your guests can dig in and love you forever 🙂
The secret of success for this amazing appetizer is to use juicy tomatoes, proper feta cheese and good quality olive oil.
Here is what you need to get, so you can make it yourself!!
- rounds rusks
- feta cheese
- olive oil
HOW TO MAKE IT
- Moisten the rusks with some water and drizzle with olive oil.
- Cut the tomatoes in cubes and put on top of the rusks
- Crumble the feta cheese on top
- add olives and oregano
- Drizzle with more olive oil
** For the best experience, accompany with ouzo or tsipouro 🙂
Enjoy and impress your family and friends with this simple but delicious dish! If you can’t find any round rusks, then use a french baguette and cut slices. This way, you can make small bruschettas, which can be perfect for a summer party!!
Eat and enjoy 🙂
