Cretan Dakos

Cretan Dakos

Serves: 4


4 medium rusks *
1 clove garlic, peeled
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large tomato, skinned and grated
¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
1 tsp. dried oregano

* Dakos or rusks are hard twice-baked bread. You can find rusks at Greek or Middle Eastern grocers.



Step 1
Sprinkle some water over each rusk to soften it slightly. Then firmly rub the garlic clove over each rusk to infuse it with garlic flavor.

Step 2
Drizzle oil evenly over the rusks and let them absorb the oil for 4–5 minutes.

Step 3
Top rusks with tomato, feta, and a sprinkle of oregano. Serve at room temperature.
