This Dakos Salad with Rocket (arugula), Apricots and feta is my twist to the Cretan Dakos Salad.
This Dakos Savoury Greek Cheesecake, is the perfect appetizer when you need to feed a crowd. A savoury cheesecake I made during Christmas, based on the Greek Cretan recipe for Dakos.
Dakos (pronounced NTAH – kos) is the name of a Cretan barley rusk. This salad is made using this rusk as its base and it is topped with cubed tomatoes, crumbled feta, myzithra (a whey cheese made in Crete) or anthotyros (similar to ricotta) and flavoured with oregano.
