I love when people share a new recipe with me and when Aunt Becky shares a recipe with me I know it's going to be good - she gave me the recipe for Pasta Florentine, which is an absolute favorite of mine. So when she told me she had a recipe for a Layered Greek Dip I needed to try, I was very excited. This dip is just bursting with yummy greek flavors: hummus, feta, Kalamata olives, tomatoes, cucumbers. It makes a huge batch, perfect for parties or get togethers. Thanks Aunt Becky for another great recipe!
Layered Greek Dip
Makes about 2 1/2 cups (16 servings)
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups prepared original hummus
1 cup chopped cucumbers
1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes - get rid of extra juice
1/2 cup chopped, pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/3 cup sliced green onions
Pita chips or multi-grain tortilla chips
In a medium bowl beat cream cheese, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and garlic with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and combined.
Spread the cream cheese mixture into a deep 9 inch pie pan or shallow serving dish. Evenly spread the hummus on top of the cream cheese.
Top the hummus with the remaining ingredients, in order. Cover and refrigerate for 2 - 24 hours. Serve with pita chips or multi-grain tortilla chips.
