Greek Layer Dip

on

Ingredients:

  • 1 container (8 oz) chives and onion cream cheese spread (sometimes I omit this, and I rarely use the whole 8 oz)
  • 1 – 2 cups hummus (I use this recipe: if doing 8×8 appetizer, I use about half; if doing individual portions, I use the whole batch of hummus)
  • 1 medium cucumber, diced (I leave skin & seeds on – personal preference)
  • 1 container (dry pint) cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters (or a couple large tomatoes diced)
  • 1 can (2 1/4 oz) sliced ripe olives (or a few spoonfuls sliced kalamata olives … I sometimes omit this if making it just for myself)
  • 1 container (4 oz) crumbled feta cheese (use about 2/3 of that)
  • 4-6 medium green onions, sliced thin (include some of the greens)
  • Pita bread, pita chips, crackers, or some other crunchy carb to serve with

For an appetizer, use an 8×8 dish (or similar) and layer in the order listed below.  If making smaller portions (i.e. individual servings for dinner), I use my smaller 2-cup Pyrex Snapware dishes and divide this into 5 or 6 of them.  Either way, layer in same order.

Directions:

  1. Spread cream cheese over the bottom of the dish (use back of spoon).
  2. Drop spoonfuls of hummus over the cream cheese and carefully spread around.
  3. Layer other ingredients, in the order listed.
  4. Serve with chips, pita bread, crackers, etc.
