Layered Greek Dip

Layered Greek Dip

With the holidays, or just in general, it is very nice to have a healthy appetizer go-to. I made this layered Greek dip on Friday night when we last minute went over to my Grandpa’s house. I love anything Mediterranean. I find the flavors so fresh. This dip is very easy to make, the only difficult part is chopping the vegetables. However, if you have a chop wizard (yes, literally like those ones on TV) it makes things muuuuuch easier. See what I am talking about, or buy one for yourself here.

This dip could definitley be wayyy upgraded. I plan on re-creating this but adding in homemade tzatziki sauce, maybe some artichokes, olives, or other veggies. This recipe here is a great basis, you can add and subtract various veggies, use a flavor of hummus that is your favorite (I just used plain hummus- no, not homemade. I used Sabra!)

As for the feta cheese, I did just use traditional, but if you do want to keep calories and fat low, you can use low-fat feta cheese as well.

I topped this dip with some dried Oregano and Lemon Pepper. This added the right amount of seasoning to keep the dip simple, yet not dull in flavor. I did not add salt whatsoever. The hummus and feta added enough sodium to where it was the perfect amount.
