Dakos me Ouzo are a meze speciality from Crete, similar to bruschetta. This recipe uses the traditional feta cheese as it’s usually easier to find, but if you can find the harder myzithra cheese, that works even better.
- 8 small slices of toast
- 1 large ripe tomato, peeled and finely chopped
- 65ml (¼ cup) of olive oil
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 225g (8 oz) feta cheese, grated
- 125ml (½ cup) ouzo
- Mix the tomato, olive oil, oregano and a dash of the ouzo in a bowl. Leave it to sit for a good half an hour to blend. Moisten the rusks under the cold tap (don’t let them get soggy), sprinkle them with the remaining ouzo, spoon over the tomato mixture and top with the grated cheese. Drizzle with olive oil to serve.
