Layer your favorite hummus with Mediterranean ingredients such as olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, scallions, and parsley for a quick and healthy party appetizer. Serve with pita bread or veggies for dipping.
You know those occasions where you volunteer to bring an appetizer then find yourself too busy to make anything so you end up bringing baby carrots with a tub of hummus?
This dip is for those.
Greek Seven Layer Dip – a.k.a. hummus with Mediterranean-inspired toppings – is nearly as easy and fast as the carrots + hummus route but with so much more crowd appeal. In fact, people go so crazy for this dip you may even look like a culinary genius!
Perfect for Memorial Day BBQs, summer picnics, or even a last-minute dinner, this colorful and nutritious dip hits the spot. I love serving it with pita bread and more veggies for dipping, and if you add grilled chicken or stuffed grape leaves it quickly becomes a healthy and complete meal.
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
