Traditional Cretan Barley Dakos with Feta Cheese – Tomato (Rusk with Feta and Tomato)

This is such a lovely appetizer to make whenever your hungry for something light.  It is one of the easiest snacks to make, when you return home from work and not really in the mood to cook,  or just having a bit of relaxing time.  This  also goes along nicely with a cup of  hot soup. 🙂

The Greek Dakos/Rusk are quite hard, so to help them soften up before eating, there are two options either drizzle with water or  olive oil.  My Uncle Nick, use to eat these quite often, and I remember he used to always add water on the rusks to soak through before he added any toppings.   I prefer this little trick for this recipe, dice the tomatoes into small pieces and let sit for a while on the rusk, so that it soaks in all the juices from the tomatoes. 🙂

Ingredients:

2 large Rusks

2 Medium Tomatoes diced

200 grams of Feta Cheese

2 Garlic Cloves diced (optional)

1/3 grams Olive Oil

Salt

Oregano

Preparation:

 

P1000887

 

P1000889

P1000891

Dice tomatoes into small pieces…add them on top of tomatoes and let the juice  flow through the Rusk until soften..I would recommend about 20 minutes.

P1000895

Add salt, garlic and 1/2 of the olive oil and top with Feta Cheese and the rest of the olive oil.  Sprinkle on Oregano and it is ready to eat.

Simple!!!

      Hi Ursula, how are you? you would have to look for Greek mini-markets or supermarkets with Greek products. Some of my friends have told me they do exists there 🙂
