Layered Greek Dip

Start the first layer of this Layered Greek Dip by spreading the hummus over the bottom of a glass serving dish. It doesn’t have to be glass, but it’s an added bonus to be able to see the layers! I prefer to make my own hummus because it is quick, easy and inexpensive. Here is my homemade hummus recipe.

Layer 2 of the Greek dip is tzatziki sauce. You can find tzatziki sauces in most grocery stores in either the refrigerated dressings or with the hummus. I also prefer just to make my own because it’s pretty simple. Here is my recipe for homemade tzatziki sauce.

Spread the tzatziki over the hummus. Then start prepping for Layer #3.

Layer 3 is a tomato and cucumber mixture. Dice 1 cucumber, which depending on the size of your cucumber will be about 1-2 cups, and quarter 10 oz of grape tomatoes. Add them to a separate bowl. Pour 1/2 a cup of Greek Vinaigrette dressing over the tomato and cucumber and mix until everything is thoroughly coated. Really any olive oil and balsamic based vinaigrette can be used here. My personal favorite is the Organicville Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinaigrette. It’s usually in the produce section of the grocery store with the refrigerated dressings.

Pour the cucumber and tomato over the tzatziki. Then add Layer 4, which is 4 oz of crumbled feta cheese. Obviously, you can either use pre-crumbled feta or crumble a block of cheese. It’s up to you. I use whichever I have on hand.

Lastly, you can garnish this dip with sliced black olives. I am not a fan of olives, so I don’t add them to my Greek dip, but you do you Boo. greek dip




I think the best chips to serve with Stacy’s Simply Naked Baked Pita chips. They make it easier to scoop up all the layers of the dip, so you experience all of the flavors with each bite. We also eat this dip with pretzel chips fairly often. And if you are looking for an easy dinner, you could serve this dip with a few pitas (maybe add some grilled chicken) and you’ve got a quick, delicious meal.
