Ever since I tried this tasty and refreshing appetizer at a friend’s house, I’ve been making it every summer. The combination of bread with feta cheese, cucumber and tomato is very traditional, but what makes this dish super tasty is the addition of dried mint (fresh won’t taste as good) with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. You get a minty, tangy and mildy sweet taste in every bite of this appetizer. This is what I call simplicity at its best!
