However Greeks do use Rusks in many effective ways. One which I could use in our Galley would be Dakos Salad. Dakos known as koukouvagia, is originally from Crete consisting of slices of oil soaked barley rusk topped with chopped tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese, and flavoured with herbs such as dried oregano, olives a modern twist would be to add rocket, capers and peppers. If you haven't tried Dakos Salad its worth a try at home, the key to a good Dakos is all in using good quality tomatoes and bread because these two ingredients are heart and soul of this salad. If you cannot find sweet and ripe tomatoes, I suggest wait until you get some.

But it's not just bread the Greek bakeries do so well. Greek pastries and cakes are made with an abundance of honey, nuts, fruits, and cream.

The melomakarono is an egg-shaped Greek dessert made mainly from flour, olive oil, and honey. Along with the kourabies it is a traditional dessert prepared primarily during the Christmas holiday season.
