Dakos - the best greek invention after the gyros -guest post-

Today I am so exited to have as a guest post a dear friend of mine!

Hi everyone!!!
When Erika asked me to write a guest post sharing a recipe, I couldn’t sleep all night!
Yes, I was very thrilled, but in the same time, you need to know a small thing about me: I'm the baby in a family of 8, so you can imagine I never really cooked (I have 6 older sisters for God's sake, why would I want to learn how to cook?).
Recently my husband and I moved to our little apartment and I had no other chance than start cooking. I thank God every day for the time I spent with my mom-in-law in the kitchen while in Roumania, for All Recipe app and for all the other cute sites with easy and quick recipes. :) I enjoy taking pictures, spending time with friends and everything arts & crafts.
I love God and my handsome hubby the most.
Come over at nami scribbles, my little blog, so we can be friends!


I’ll be sharing with you today a recently discovered recipe that makes my mouth water only when I think of it.
We’ll be making Dakos, I think the best Greek invention after the gyros.

You will need:

1 round plain bagel cut in half (I always use 2 slices of homemade bread and it’s delicious);
  • 1 big juicy tomato;
  • feta cheese (grated or crumbled);
  • pepper and basil to taste;
  • olive oil.

What you do:

Toast the bagel (in my case the slices of bread) to be medium dark. Meanwhile the bagel is toasting, cut the tomato in half and grate it with the large-grate of a multi grater in a small ball. Throw away the skin. You’ll have like a juicy pasta.
Spread the grated tomato on top of the toasted bagel, and top it with cheese. Sprinkle with pepper and basil to taste and drizzle with olive oil.
Allow the tomato juice couple of minutes to get in the bagel and then enjoy it!
Be aware: it’s addictive!!
 I made myself some this morning because I just couldn't write about it without having any..

  1. hELLO from sunny and warm greece. writing from crete, the 'birth place of dakos', i just want to give you some more tips about it. You can use raw goat cheese instead of feta, wheat rusk instead of bagel and you can add some oregano or thym on the top instead of basil. kisses from crete

  2. I love Crete, we spent our honeymoon there, fantastic place! Thank you for all the great tips!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
