Five-Layer Greek Dip

ncGreekDip1nm

The first time I had Greek food was when I lived in Kansas City. A friend and I ate at this simple little family-owned Greek restaurant that was within walking distance from where I lived (unfortunately, it is no longer in business). The food there was just too good for words! I’ve eaten at many other Greek restaurants since then, but haven’t found any that top the homey little place I first went to.

If you are a fan of Greek food, too, I think you’ll like this easy-to-make hummus-based Five-Layer Greek Dip. I found the recipe over at Kraft Foods and changed it slightly by using less feta cheese and more chopped cucumber and olives than their recipe called for. You can either use store-bought hummus or make your favorite hummus recipe and use that in the dip (you may want to check out the easy Hummus recipe that I just posted a few days ago).

FIVE-LAYER GREEK DIP by NancyCreative, adapted from Kraft Foods

  • 1 (7-ounce) package of your favorite Hummus (or make your own)
  • 2–4 ounces of Feta Cheese, crumbled (I used 2 ounces to layer over the hummus, and 1 ounce to sprinkle over the top of all the layers)
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumbers
  • 3 Tablespoons sliced kalamata olives
  • Pita Chips, for dipping

Spread hummus onto bottom of 9-inch pie plate. Cover the hummus with a layer of feta cheese, followed by layers of the chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, and sliced olives (I layered 2 ounces of feta cheese over the hummus, then sprinkled another ounce over the top of all the layers). Serve with pita chips.

It’s such an easy, healthy recipe…hope you enjoy it!

    Oh my gosh! I want this right now and it’s only 7am! Greek food is my favorite but I rarely make it since my kids won’t eat it. I think I’m going to make this, though, and eat the entire dish myself! Can’t wait!!!
