Not your Momma’s 7 Layer Dip

15 Jul

Who doesn’t love 7 layer dip? Well, here’s a Greek version and not only is it super tasty, it is also kinda healthy. I made it this past weekend for a small gathering and it was huge hit (there was nothing left). You can serve it with pita chips, warmed pita bread cut into triangles or bagel chips. Stacy’s actually makes a new pita crisp that I happen to love because it is thinner and lighter than the regular pita chips. Vegetables are good too, especially if you or your guests are gluten free.

I dip, you dip...we dip!

I dip, you dip…we dip!

I adapted this from SkinnyTaste.com. There are just a few changes, the first one being she makes hers in a 9″ x 13″ Pyrex pan, not to insult her but I happen to like to serve in a prettier way so I made mine in a white ceramic serving dish. Secondly, I beefed up the amount of hummus and greek yogurt to make it more substantial, 8 oz seemed to spread out too thin. Give it whirl and let me know what think!

1 1/2 cups hummus

1 1/2 cups plain low-fat or no fat Greek yogurt

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp fresh chopped dill

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Pinch of Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion

1 cup chopped English or regular cucumber (seeded)

1 cup seeded, chopped tomato

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup Kalamata olives, chopped

In a small bowl combine yogurt, dill, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside.

In the dish of your choice, spread the hummus as the first layer, then the greek yogurt mixture, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, feta and lastly the olives.

Super easy, super tasty and good for you!

*The dish should be 1.5 or 2 quarts.
