A candy with a treasure inside to be discovered: inside many sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes, black olives, capers and pieces of tasty feta. For the external wrapping try to use some sheets of phyllo dough, spread with an emulsion of oil, lemon and basil.

Find out how to prepare the perfect bundles for the August XNUMXth picnic.

Ingredients to prepare the bundles

(6 bundles)

  • 3-4 sheets of phyllo dough

  • 300 g cherry tomatoes

  • 200 g of feta cheese

  • a handful of crushed black olives

  • a spoonful of capers

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • lemon juice

  • basil leaves

  • sale

  • kitchen twine


Wash the cherry tomatoes and mix them with the olives, capers and crumbled feta. Take the phyllo dough sheets and cut out squares of about 15 cm per side. Take a square spread it with an emulsion of oil, lemon and chopped basil and lay another square on top. Put two tablespoons of filling in the center and close it, tying it with kitchen twine. Brush the closing part with more emulsion. Proceed like this also with the rest.

Bake for 15 minutes at 180 °.

Advice. The phyllo dough, widely used in Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine, is a valid and lighter alternative to puff pastry. In fact, the very thin sheets contain neither butter nor sugar and can be used for both sweets and savory, just spread them with oil or very little butter.
