Cretan Dakos Salad

A cretan dakos is essentially a twice-cooked, wholegrain barley rusk that in Crete is a must have staple for any meal. Nutty in flavour and deliciously crunchy these rusks are super healthy and perfect for salads or lightly baked oven dishes. Below is a simple classic, with a 'The Food Philosopher' twist, that is delicious and too easy to make! 

Cretan Dakos Salad

  1. Break one rusk into bite-sized pieces. Our rusks come in packs of 10. 
  2. Chop up some cherry tomatoes and mix them with some capers, dried oregano and some kalamata olives in a large bowl. 
  3. Mix our Kyriako's Small Batch olive oil together with some red wine vinegar and pour it over the contents in the bowl. Throw in the broken rusks and mix together.
  4. Season with black pepper and, if necessary salt. 
  5. Place on a plate and finish by crumbling some feta cheese on top with extra herbs and olive oil to taste. 
  6. Kali Orexi! (Enjoy!)
