I’m always looking for new ideas when it comes to cold dips, especially this time of year. My ol’ reliable is my 7 Layer Dip, but as most of my loyal readers know, I like my variety 🙂 So, I created this and brought it with us to see friends who invited us over.
This the Greek version of my 7 Layer Dip. It’s just as easy to make, but brings a whole new flavor combination to the table. I built it around leftover tzatziki that I had in the fridge. I think hummus would be fine in place of it, if that’s what you have on hand.
It’s great served with pita chips (very easy to make yourself!), tortilla chips, potato chips or vegetables. Give it a whirl at your next party, or when you’re on appetizer duty at the next barbecue you’re attending.
Mediterranean Layer Dip
1 cup tzatziki
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tomato, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
3/4 cup chopped kalamata olives
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled fat free feta
2 tablespoons oregano
Mix tzatziki and cream cheese together, and spread it over the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate or dish. Add remaining ingredients evenly on top and top with oregano. Chill before serving.
