This Mediterranean layer dip is a healthy snack perfect for a Super Bowl party. Because we all need to balance out the wings, pizza, and chips, right?
I started making this dip a few years back when looking for some healthier options to the typical “sit and watch football” foods. It’s easy to put together, and super delicious!
All you need is a package of hummus, a small container of low fat or non-fat Greek yogurt, feta, and some veggies to add on top.
I call it my seven-layer – with an optional eighth layer – dip. I’m not much of an olive person, but if you are, feel free to add that extra eighth layer.
If making this for a crowd, you’ll start out with a shallow container (square, rectangular, or round – it doesn’t matter) and spread a layer of hummus in the bottom. Next comes the Greek yogurt, followed by the feta. From there, sprinkle on the veggies in layers – green onion, cucumber, tomato, chopped spinach, and finally olives if you’re into that kind of thing.
You can serve with pita or other chip – I like to make homemade pita chips by tearing up a whole wheat pita into pieces and lightly toasting until crispy in the oven.
This can keep in the fridge a few days, but it does tend to get a little watery the longer it sits, so for maximum deliciousness and minimum ick-factor, serve within a day.
I hope you enjoy this crowd-pleasing dip! I’m always looking for new recipes to try – what is your favorite party food?
