This week`s recipe is one of my favorites by far. I cook it very often and it could be my daily main dish (I actually think at a certain busy office period it was!!).
It is mainly a summer recipe, since it is a cold plate and it involves -of course- lots of tomatoes and feta cheese. So, with the summer getting closer, I though of sharing this week that easy Greek recipe coming from Crete, called Dakos.
The main ingredient, which makes the difference in the recipe`s taste, is the rusk used as the base of the plate. For my meze today I used slices of white bread instead.
the ingredients (for two)
- two large slices of bread/ two large dakos rusk
- two large tomatoes
- feta cheese
- olive oil
- capers /oregano
- bake the bread for a couple of minutes until crunch (if you are using rusks place them at the bottom of the plate/ you can cut them in small pieces and salt them a bit)
- cut and slice the tomatoes -and preferably remove their skin-
- place them on top of the bread/rusk for it to get wet from the tomatoes juice
- slice into small cubes the feta cheese and spread it on top
- add the capers/oregano, some salt and olive oil
You can accompany your dish, with iced Greek Ouzo or cold white wine.
+Have you taste Greek Dakos Meze before??
