Layered Greek Dip


Push that seven-layered bean dip aside for Superbowl and serve something a little different, more classy and yummy.

Like a typical Greek salad, the same fresh flavors come through in this dip; cucumbers, tomato, feta and kalamata olives work together to create a fabulous snack.

This will disappear quick so you might want to make extra!!!

Layered Greek Dip
Adapted from BHG

One 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups prepared hummus
1 cup chopped cucumber
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/3 cup sliced green onions
Multigrain tortilla chips/pita chips

In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and garlic with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and combined.

Spread cream cheese mixture into a deep 9″ pie plate or shallow serving dish.  Evenly spread hummus on cream cheese layer.  Top with cucumber, tomato, olives, feta cheese and green onions.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.  Serve with chips.

    I live in Greece, and this reminds me of almost exactly what I had in a taverna last night. The only unfortunate thing about replicating this here is that it’s nearly impossible to find hummus in grocery stores! It’s no fun! Great recipe, though.

  2. I never would have thought to put cream cheese and hummus in the same dip but I can see how this would be delicious.

    OMG, this looks wonderful! And the cherry tomatoes have me salivating, they look so lucious and ripe. I live in the Midwest, and most of the produce in the grocery stores this time a year looks half dead. How lucky you are to live in a part of the country where you can purchase such glorious produce!

  5. This looks sooo good! And talk about healthy too! Thanks for a great recipe, Ina

    Cannot wait to try it!!!!!

  7. I bought all the items for a potluck tomorrow. I didn’t realised until I got home that there wasn’t any garlic listed in the ingredients :(

    Three minced cloves of garlic, right?

  8. PS. I hope that didn’t sound grumpy! I didn’t mean it to :)

  9. No worries! I just wanted to tell you so you could add it for others. I’m all out of garlic here so I’m having to use powder.

  10. I could eat the whole bowl!

    Great idea! This has got some really healthy elements and a whole lot of natural, fresh flavor – perfect for guiltless snacking!

    Yum! That looks so fresh and healthy.

  14. This is such a good idea! I love greek food

  15. I successfully made this for the potluck and it was completely finished by the attendees! Everyone enjoyed the flavour combination and the compliment that I heard the most was that the freshness of the vegetables undercut the seasoned cream cheese + the feta! Thanks for passing this along :)

    I could eat the whole bowl by myself -yum!

    I made this dip for a work party, my coworkers loved it. I didn’t use onions, not a fan, but it came out wonderful. Thanks for all the delicious ideas!
