Step by step

The “wise” Cretan salad… the base of the Mediterranean diet!!!
Enjoy it as a healthy breakfast, a filling lunch or a light dinner.

Get the small rusk rolls (also known as ntakos), open them & slightly wet them from the cut side with cold water to soften (you can skip this part if you leave them more time to soak with the tomato juice). Place them in a serving plate/surface with the cut on top. Pour slowly the tomato juice on them & spread it with a spoon if needed. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt & then divide the mizithra cheese on them. You can top with pickled vine tops or chopped kalamata olives for extra flavour. For sure you sprinkle with the herb mix & you drizzle with a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil!

Vegetarian, Healthy &… Delicious
