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!
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.
