The first time I had authentic Greek food was at a simple little family-owned Greek restaurant. Unfortunately, it’s no longer in business. 😦 I’ve eaten at many other Greek restaurants since then, but haven’t found any that top that place! I don’t cook a lot of Greek dishes myself, but I do make some easy dips and salads now and then, including this quick and simple 5-Layer Greek Dip.
If you’re a fan of Greek food too, I think you’ll like this easy-to-make hummus-based dip. You can either use store-bought hummus or make your own and use that in the dip. The hummus is topped with feta cheese, chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, and sliced olives…yum! It’s nice enjoying a dip that’s on the healthy side!
5-Layer Greek Dip
5-LAYER GREEK DIP by NancyC
Makes about 8 servings
1 (7-ounce) package of your favorite Hummus (or make your own)
1 cup crumbled Feta Cheese, divided (use 3/4 cup Feta Cheese to layer over the hummus, and 1/4 cup 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 the entire 7 ounces of hummus onto the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate.
Cover the hummus with a layer of 3/4 cup Feta Cheese, followed by layers of chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, and sliced olives. Then sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup Feta Cheese over everything. Refrigerate until ready to serve, and serve with pita chips.
