A traditional veggie dish from the island of Crete, perfect for a light dinner! The secret behind the perfect Ntakos is to use juicy, fresh, organic, on the vine tomatos as they are the key ingredient that brings this dish to life.
Garnishing with extra virgin, good quality olive oil will give the perfect finishing touch to this traditional Cretan rusks with tomatoes and feta cheese dish.
Dakos or ntakos, also known as koukouvagia or koukouvayia or—in eastern Crete—kouloukopsomo, is a Cretan meze consisting of a slice of soaked dried bread or barley rusk topped with chopped tomatoes and crumbled feta or mizithra cheese, and flavored with herbs such as dried oregano. Olives and pepper can also be added!
