Dakos

I made these last year but I thought they were worth showing again. This is a Greek dish called Dakos. If you can't find these dry Greek rusks I am using here, you could just use a nice piece of toasted bread. This is sort of like a Greek panzanella salad.


Dice up some zucchini.


Dice a lot of garlic.


Saute' them in a bit of olive oil sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper until they just begin to soften then set them aside.


Moisten the dakos with some tomato juice.


Mix some feta with a few tablespoons of red wine, olive oil and some cracked pepper and dried oregano. Smash the feta to make a smooth sauce. This will be your dressing.


Add some sliced fresh tomatoes.


Then add the zucchini/garlic mixture.


Add some finely sliced onions, red peppers, green peppers and kalamata olives.


Add some thinly sliced radishes.


Drizzle with the feta dressing and sprinkle with fresh basil and parsley.


I served them with my dilled cucumbers on the side. These would be great served on toasted rosemary no knead bread.
