This Greek Layer Dip combines layers of a Greek seasoned cream cheese, hummus, cucumber, tomato, feta and is finally finished with a sprinkle of chopped green onion. Serve it with fresh veggies or pita chips and watch it disappear!
We celebrated my daughter’s graduation from high school a couple weeks ago. If you’ve ever planned a party you know how much work is involved. I was very grateful for all the help I received from so many people! Everything about the party (including the weather thankfully!) was a complete success and a total team effort.
My mom and my son spent weeks ahead of the party sprucing up the grounds and their back breaking work definitely showed! Everything was picture perfect!
My sister’s boyfriend (a former executive chef) took care of the main menu which included chicken parmesan, ziti, meatballs and a shrimp and rice dish. My son smoked some delicious pulled pork topped with his tasty homemade barbecue sauce. The appetizers were taken care of by my mom and lots of other family and friends. This Greek Layer Dip was the tasty dish that my former mother in law brought and it was so amazing I wanted to make sure I shared it with you!
Greek Layer Dip
- 1 ,8 ounce package Cream cheese ,softened
- 1 ,8 ounce container Hummus, (I used plain but you can choose your favorite flavor)
- 1 Cup Cucumbers ,chopped
- 1 ,8 ounce container Cherry tomatoes, diced
- 1 Cup Crumbled feta cheese
- Juice from one lemon
- 2 teaspoons Greek seasoning ,I used mcCormick
- 1 Scallion ,diced
- In a small mixing bowl, mix cream cheese with lemon juice and greek seasoning. Spread in the bottom of a shallow dish. A pie plate or 9x9 baking dish would work. I used a long white serving dish that I had. Next spread hummus over the cream cheese. Add a layer of chopped cucumbers, diced tomatoes then top with the feta and scallion.
- ** You can chop all of your veggies and have your cream cheese mixture pre made, however you really don't want to put everything together until a few hours before serving. The cucumbers and tomatoes become watery and will make your dip too soupy. Once everything is chopped and mixed, it can be put together very quickly right before serving.
This Greek Layer Dip was a big hit and so was the Pesto & Sun Dried Tomato Torta which I shared the recipe for last week. I’m so thankful to everyone who helped me pull this party together and make it such a special day for my daughter!
