How to make Cretan Dakos

Moisten the rusks with the juice from the tomatoes and drizzle them with olive oil. 

Crumble the feta cheese with a fork (or just use your fingers, like we do!).

Spoon the diced tomatoes on to the rusk and top with the feta, olives & sea fennel.

Sprinkle with the herbs and add another drizzle of extra virgin olive oil as a final touch. Enjoy!
