Mediterranean Seven Layer Dip With Hummus

 

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for mediterranean seven layer dip, which I made for a ladies night with my girlfriends. This dip is inspired by one of my all time favorite lads : Mediterranean Salad With Spicy Roasted Chickpeas.

You can definitely tell I’m on a Mediterranean recipe kick lately. That’s because as much as I like grilling in the summer, I also like to make simple appetizers like this one, which require minimal effort. Grab some pita bread (chips or even regular bread) and this will make a light meal.

Mediterranean Seven Layer Dip Recipe

I’ve noticed that most of the Greek/Mediterranean dip recipes include a layer of Greek yogurt, but I never make it like that. To me just a layer of hummus (like this Roasted Garlic and Lemon one) is just enough. Then I added a layer of roasted red peppers, cucumbers, kalamata olives, crumbled feta cheese, tomatoes and chopped red onions and dill (red onions and dill=one layer!). You can leave the dill out of switch it with chopped parsley.

You can definitely make the dip a few hours or a day in advance, but keep in mind that vegetables could get a little watery.
