    evelyn/athens's Note:

    I love this bread as a snack mid-morning. It satisfies in so many ways. Its texture is more like a savoury biscuit and really good. Olives and feta cheese are perfect companions.

      I love greek food, I love kalamata olives, feta, and bread. I love all these things and was really excited about this recipe because there's a bakery in my town that sells olive bread. This didn't live up to expectations for me. It was WAY too salty (the olives, feta, and yogurt did it in), and I didn't care for the dry biscuit texture. Really bummed it didn't work out.

      This bread was the perfect addition to the Greek dinner I planned. It had just the right crumbly texture and the olives and feta really came through with a pop! I got three large loafs out of the recipe and stacked them whole in a basket and let people tear off what they wanted. I will be making this again for sure!
