The secret to a good Greek salad is quality produce and a healthy dose of dressing. Best mixed by hand, this is a great recipe to get the kids involved with dinner prep.
Cretan barley rusks are made from whole grain barley flour, water and salt, and are super crisp and healthy. You will find them in Greek delis or at online specialty food shops. If you can’t find any Cretan rusks, use leftover stale bread to make your own!
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Dice the bread, toss with some salt, pepper and dried oregano and spread out on a baking sheet. Bake until the bread is crispy — no longer than 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. They are then ready to use.
