The other weekend Jason and I were in Athens visiting some friends. If you haven’t been to Greece it should definitely be on your to-do list. It is so old and historical and the people are some of the most warm and happy that we have ever met. Plus, they love to eat! Needless to say we ate alot.
We stayed with our friend George, who runs the best hotel in Santorini. One thing we noticed about greek cuisine is the use of the word salad, which boils down to a spread or dip for bread. They are commonly cheese based and contained very little if any greenery, but I was not complaining.
George made us something called Dakos, which of course he described as a salad. I would say it is more like a Bruschetta. But calling it salad sure makes you feel better. It has the essential tastes of Greece and is something you can eat all day long but preferably with ouzo.
