“A traditional meze or light meal on the island of Crete, dakos (also called "koukouvayia") is often called "Greek bruschetta," and is easy to make with few ingredients. The original recipe calls for barley rusk, which is a really dry bread and is sprayed with water to moisten it. This recipe can be updated to use whatever rustic type bread you have on hand.”

Directions

  1. Place the bread slices under the broiler and broil a few minutes on each side to toast golden brown.
  2. Grate the tomato with a vegetable grater (or the large grate on a multi-grater) into a strainer over a bowl so most of the liquid drains off.
  3. Spread the grated tomato on the bread and top with cheese. Sprinkle with pepper and a good amount of oregano, and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Yield: 2-4 as a meze or appetizer.
