2.  Submerge the rusks 1/3 to 1/2 way in water for 30 seconds or so to soften one side of them. With the soft side facing upwards, spoon over the tomatoes and garlic mixture. Crumble feta over the top. Sprinkle with the oregano and garnish with olives.

3.  Drizzle a generous lug of olive oil over the top and season with salt and cracked black pepper.
