The dish includes an amazing raw tomato sauce, plus you will need a very good extra-virgin olive oil. I would highly recommend this amazing extra-virgin olive oil from Crete (sorry, you will have to fly to Crete to get it 🙂 It’s made exclusively from Winery Stilianou, that makes dry wines from the traditional Crete grapes. There is a fruity and spicy combination in the olive oil which is delicious!
