Mediterranean layered dip is your go-to, last minute, “help I need a quick appetizer” recipe! Filled with good-for-you, nutrient rich fresh veggies, creamy feta cheese, herbs and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Grab your cucumbers, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and chop-chop-chop, nice and small so with each scrumptious scoop they get tiny bits of everything in each bite.

You can make this in an 8×8 dish or any shallow dish. Make it big or small, simply adjusting the ingredients according to how many people you want to feed. I love schmearing it on a pretty plate or platter and then adding sliced veggies, pita wedges or crackers right to the plate. Gorgeous isn’t it!?

The beauty behind dishes like this is you make it how YOU like it. Don’t like cucumbers, leave them off, thought of something else you love…add it!

OTHER TOPPING IDEAS

  • Adore roasted red peppers, add them.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes, in oil or dried, chopped fine
  • Pepperoncinis, chopped
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Goat Cheese
  • Avocados

I adore Mediterranean foods, like this Chicken Shawrma, on repeat in our home or these super healthy Greek Quinoa Bowls!

GREEK LAYERED DIP INGREDIENTS

  • Hummus; I used roasted red pepper, use your favorite flavor
  • Cucumber, chopped
  • Tomatoes; chopped
  • Artichoke hearts (whole, brined or marinated), chopped
  • Kalamata olives, seeded and chopped (try other olives too)
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Basil or Oregano (or both), fresh, chopped
  • Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, Italian Seasoning, fresh pepper

HUMMUS DIP ASSEMBLE!

Stir the hummus well, so it’s nice and smooth. I used roasted red pepper hummus, you can use any flavor you like; schmear using a spatula in a reasonably thick layer on your serving dish.

Drizzle on some good quality olive oil, then sprinkle on some of your favorite spices. I used Trader Joe’s Onion Salt and a delicious Italian Seasoning blend, plus a sprinkle of sea salt. Try oregano, basil, pepper, red pepper flakes, all would be delicious.

Toss on some creamy feta cheese crumbles and a generous drizzle of balsamic vinegar, or try a balsamic reduction drizzled over the top. Add a sprinkle of flaky sea salt…perfecto!!

Don’t forget your freshly chopped basil or oregano!

Serve with pita wedges (or make your own amazing Naan – gah!), sliced peppers (red, orange, yellow), tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers — whatever floats your boat!

Love hearing this Cynthia!! And yes, absolutely, you can make it ahead of time, cover it tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate, the veggies may not be quite as crisp but it should still taste amazing! I've also had leftovers the next day! Be well!
