Who doesn’t love a 7 layer dip? Beans, sour cream, guac, salsa, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and cheese …. yummm!! But have you ever tried a layered Mediterranean dip? I recently saw this on Pintrest and immediately was intrigued to try it out. We had a backyard birthday barbecue
(try saying that 3 times fast!) to go to last month so I decided what better way to test it out!
This has to be one of the EASIEST recipes ever. You literally just need to chop a few items and layer everything in a clear dish. All you need is some Tzatziki, hummus, an English cucumber, red onion, tomatoes (I used cherry), black olives and Feta cheese.
I then sprinkled some black olives over everything. I ended up using canned olives because that is what I had on hand, but next time I would definitely opt for the ones that you can pick up in the deli section of your local supermarket.
And that’s it! Super easy, simple and not to mention a complete crowd pleaser! The thing that I love about this dip is that it is a perfect make-ahead app and transports easily. I served the dip with whole wheat pita triangles but you can also use tortilla chips or veggies. And IF you have any leftover (which I highly doubt you will!) you can use the dip to make yourself a grilled chicken pita pocket the next day.
So the next time that you’re entertaining or need to take an app to a party, ditch the old nacho and salsa platter and opt for this fresh and flavourful 7 Layer Mediterranean Dip!
If you have any quick and easy recipes, or think that I should try something out, leave me a comment below. I’m always looking for new eats!
Well, until next time!
