Simple, refreshing and summery. A classic Greek dish with a plant-based twist making it even more delicious than it is.
If you've ever been in Greece you've probably seen Dakos on the menu of pretty much every Greek taverna. It's one of those dishes that even though it originates from Crete it's one of the country's favourite starters.
Living in Amsterdam makes it a bit hard sometimes to find things like Dakos which is also one of the reasons we decided to build this website and an e-shop to go with it. It might not be ready yet but we're working hard on getting our e-shop up and running because then we can provide you with products like Dakos, Greek mountain tea and oregano that are a bit tough to find or even if you do, the quality is just not good enough... If you haven't already, subscribe to our NOWsletter to find out when our e-shop goes live and you can buy all the natural, sustainable goodies we'll have on offer.
Enough self-promotion, let's get back to the important things!
This recipe has become one of our favourite summer dishes for its simplicity, crunchiness and well-balanced sweetness.
