      I made the recipe first exactly as shown, but found the feta a little overpowering. I then added fresh white cheese (myzithra in Greece, but could be any unsalted fresh cheese such as ricotta or even cottage cheese). My family loved it on pita bread and it vanished in no time!

      Excellent, made it as written and served it with pita crisps. 2 days later I added dried oregano and fresh chopped parsley to what was left and we enjoyed it again!!

      Perfection! If I closed my eyes I could be back in my favourite taverna on Tinos. The full-on savoury flavour, the slight dry taste in the mouth, the heat kick that follows.
