Layered Greek Dip

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Layered Greek Dip

Introduction

I combined all my favorite Greek ingredients, layered them in a dish and created a dip that's a hit at parties or family game night. I combined all my favorite Greek ingredients, layered them in a dish and created a dip that's a hit at parties or family game night.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 cup hummus
    1 batch Chef Meg's Cucumber Raita
    2 cups arugula, chopped
    8 black olives, pitted and chopped
    2 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
    3 sprigs mint, chopped

    Want to add more layers? Chop up any of these:
    roasted red peppers
    fresh tomatoes
    red onions
    pepperoncini
    whole chickpeas
    roasted garlic

Tips

For easier portion control, layer the dip in 1-cup ramekins.

Serve this over a bed of dark leafy greens for a light summer supper. Pair with Greek-spiced grilled meats.

Directions

To assemble the dip, use a glass bowl with straight sides. Spread the hummus in the bottom, then add the chopped arugula, raita, olives, feta and mint.


You can make everything ahead of time, but don't layer the dip until just before you're ready to eat or the cucumbers will make the dip watery.

Serving Size: Makes 8 servings, 1/2 cup per serving

    I love this layered dip. I have been making it since last fall. I layer hummus, diced cucumbers, red onion (or any sweet onion), chopped fresh tomatoes, chopped red bell pepper, fat-free feta cheese, sliced black or Greek olives & fresh dill weed. Serve with Pocket Thins high fiber flatbread. Yum! - 1/16/13

    It's delish as a dip with veggies (zucchini spears, strips of peppers, etc.). I usually don't add the raita, and I replace the mint with some fresh dill and the black olives with some kalamata, Perfect healthy option for a potluck! - 5/15/12

  • Can you please clarify what a serving size is? I understand it's 1/8th of the overall dish but I would need to know if it's a Tablespoon, Cup or ounces. I'd hate to have to mess up the whole dip to figure that out as it's a layered dish.

    Thanks! - 5/10/13

    I haven't tried this yet but think it might be good. I don't like the idea of calling it Nacho's when it is really a dip. - 5/11/12
