In Greek: ριγανάδα, pronounced ree-ghah-NAH-thah

This is one version of Greek bruschetta and a favorite and easy recipe for a quick snack or accompaniment to drinks. Use homemade crusty country bread, or thick slices of sourdough, french, or italian bread.

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3/4-inch slices of country style bread
  • chopped tomatoes
  • crumbled feta cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • dried Greek oregano (rigani)

Preparation:

Note: Quantities depend on the number of people and the size of their appetites. Be creative!

Grill the bread over coals, in the oven, or on a countertop grill until the ridges are clearly defined and the bread is crusty. Brush well with olive oil while hot. Top with enough chopped tomatoes to cover, and add crumbled feta cheese to taste. Sprinkle with oregano, and serve.

Alternatives:
Try adding a slice of grilled eggplant or some Melitzanosalata (eggplant dip) to the mix!
