Mediterranean 7-Layer Dip

This recipe is going on my appetizer go-to list.  It's perfect for any occasion, but a much healthier version of other layer dips you may find at your gathering.  Whether its a football watch party or an outdoor BBQ, this dip is perfect for sharing!  We loved it so much, I would keep it in my fridge just to snack on throughout the week...its just that good! 

Those of you that know me well know that I search the internet for new recipes almost daily.  This idea is from the Self magazine website via Pinterest.  It's such a great idea!  Give it a try and make it your own, substituting your favorite veggies or adding more layers.  Enjoy!

Happy Cooking!
Mediterranean 7-Layer Dip
recipe based on http://www.self.com/blogs/flash/2012/09/recipe-mediterranean-layer-dip.html
1 cup of your favorite hummus (I used Trader Joe's original creamy hummus)
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
1/3 cup roasted red pepper, chopped (or if you want added crunch, use a fresh red pepper)
8 Greek olives, chopped
1/4 cup crumbled feta
1/4 cup of freshly chopped basil
pita chips for serving

Layer the hummus on to the plate and spread until its smooth and even.
Then comes the layers of tomato, cucumbers, and red pepper.

Lastly, the olives, feta and basil. 
Serve immediately with pita chips or your favorite chip.  You can make it ahead of time and it stores well in the fridge for 2-3 days.  Enjoy!
