A traditional veggie dish from the island of Crete, perfect for a light dinner! The secret behind the perfect Ntakos is to use juicy, fresh, organic, on the vine tomato as they are the key ingredient that brings this dish to life. Garnishing with extra virgin, good quality olive oil will give the perfect finishing touch to this traditional Cretan rusks with tomatoes and feta cheese dish.
Moisten the rusks ( paximadia ), with 4 tbsps of water each, and drizzle with the olive oil.
Use a grater to grate the tomatoes, into a colander and leave for 5 minutes to drain.
Crumble the feta cheese and myzithra (soft cheese) with a fork, or grate it with a grater.
To put the dish together, spread the grated tomato on the rusks and add the crumbled cheese. Top with the olive oil and capers. Sprinkle with the oregano and drizzle with some extra olive oil.
