Greek Layered Appetizer Dip
Greek Layered Appetizer ~ hummus, tzatziki, olives and feta layered for a simple, healthy appetizer dip or add chicken as an light entrée.
Last weekend I was at a ‘Last Fling Before the Ring’ bachelorette party for one of my daughter’s childhood friends. The guest list included both the bride-to-be and her friends and their moms. After years of sleepovers, carpooling, cheerleading and school dances, the moms have gotten to be friends and were excited to be included.
We packed our cars and headed to wine country in Northern Michigan on Grand Traverse Bay. The weather was sunny and unseasonably warm and it was a fun weekend filled with lots of laughs and plenty of food.
Everyone brought wine and dishes to share and . . . I did mention wine? There was plenty.
Late nights meant chips and dip and sheet pans of pizza rolls with ranch dressing. We could have used a healthy appetizer like this Greek Layered Dip. I guess that’s why there’s “next time”.
After days of heavy food and not enough sleep, this Greek Layered Dip with toasted naan bread and fresh colorful veggies was just what I needed when I got home.
What’s in a Greek Layered Dip?
It’s an easy appetizer and with some grilled chicken, easily converts to a meal. I’ve made it for our Book Club group and it vanished.
On a plate or shallow pan, spread a layer of hummus. Top evenly with tzatziki then scatter diced fresh tomatoes, sliced Kalamata olives, crumbed Feta cheese and a sprinkle of fresh dill. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes up to overnight.
If you’re hosting a party, make this dip the day before and put it out when guests arrive.
I like to toast the pita or naan bread on a baking sheet, lightly spraying with cooking spray and sprinkling with sea salt. They get warm and lightly crisp in 5-8 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
- As an appetizer with toasted pita and fresh vegetables like the photos.
- With grilled chicken breasts for a lighter meal.
- As a delicious, healthy light lunch.
Do we share a love of Greek food?
Garlic Feta Dip is another easy, healthy recipe made with plain Greek yogurt, Feta cheese and just the right amount of garlic or a tasty Greek Nacho ~ layers of warm toasted pita, seasoned chicken, Tzatziki, sautéed peppers and onions, tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese.
