Greek inspired Layered Hummus Dip!
Enjoy this easy to make dip with tons of flavor and a great combination of textures; perfect for entertaining!
This lovely layered hummus dip is absolutely perfect for casual entertaining. Easily assembled with store-bought convenience foods, there’s no cooking involved (unless you count toasting the pine nuts for 5 minutes!)
Our multi-purpose dip is a great starter for your Greek themed dinner party but also doubles as a main course add-on. It’s terrific smeared on everything from pitas, chips, vegetables and even your main course Grilled Greek Chicken kabobs.
A nice layered hummus dip is just the thing to hold the chicken and vegetables on a Greek pita pizza or Gyro sandwich too.
Assemble this layered hummus dip on a small platter making all the components easy to see and scoop.
Dicing the vegetables into 1/4-inch pieces makes dipping much more user friendly. Serve with hearty chips, chunky vegetables, pita bread or baked pita chips for easy scooping. We love making our own healthier baked pita chips using this recipe for Whole What Pita Breads. It only takes a few minutes and is easily adapted to your favorite seasonings.
Ingredients needed to make this easy dip:
- prepared hummus – we highly recommend Sabra Classic Hummus Dip for it’s fantastic flavor and silky smooth consistency.
- plain Greek yogurt – you can use full-fat or low-fat yogurt in this recipe. We love Siggi’s 4% plain Icelandic Skyr for this dip.
- English cucumber – diced
- roasted red peppers – found in jars or on the olive bar at your local well stocked grocery store
- kalamata olives – pitted
- red onion – diced
- olive oil – try a good quality imported Greek olive oil for this recipe. You won’t be sorry!
- parsley leaves
- black pepper
- feta cheese
- toasted pine nuts
Suggested for serving:
- pita bread
- cucumber slices
- spread on sandwiches in place of mayonnaise
Check the olive bar at your grocery store for roasted red peppers and kalamata olives.
There’s no need to buy big jars of peppers and olives when you can purchase just the right amount for this recipe from the olive bar. While we keep olives in the refrigerator year-round, we don’t always have a need for a whole jar of roasted red peppers.
Loaded with healthy fats, kalamata olives are a good source of iron and calcium with vitamin A and fiber benefits too. Try adding these ancient olives to a tapenade, Greek salad or this Greek Layered Hummus Dip!
Make this luscious Greek Layered Hummus Dip part of your next Greek themed dinner party!
Serve this easy dip as a starter or as part of the main course. Complete the meal with our easy Whole Wheat Pita Recipe and these delicious Grilled Greek Chicken kabobs. Don’t forget the Easy Greek Salad and a bottle of wine too! Enjoy!
