Dakos (Tomato, Artichokes, & Feta Cheese Bread Bowl Salad
While in Athens, for the Olympic Games, I had this sweet and savory salad with a rich flavored soup at Iliosporo on Ermou Street. They deserve a Gold medal for their straight forward traditional Greek fare.
Meze means light meal. Dakos (also called "koukouvayia") is called "Greek bruschetta," by tourist. It is easy to make with few ingredients, with little cooking.
Dakos is made with deliciously marinated artichokes and served in a barley rusk.
Rusk is a crusty barley based bread similar to a Tuscan Peasant Bread. I use a twice “baked” bread bowl.Submitted by: JVANAM
