layered hummus dip

Hummus is great on it’s own, but when it’s topped with feta, roasted red peppers, artichokes and kalamata olives it is downright delicious. (It would also be a good way to serve hummus with a non-believer crowd. ;) )

I’ve wanted to make a dip like this for quite some time so I jumped at the chance to bring an appetizer to the first cookout of the year. (True Minnesota story: it has snowed since that first cookout and may snow again tonight!) It is essentially Greece’s version of taco dip and is wonderfulwith pita chips and cucumber slices.

Lucky enough to have some leftovers? It made a great lunch stuffed in a pita with a tomato and cucumber salad.

Layered Hummus Dip - 8 appetizer servings – inspiration from Whole Foods Market

  • 1 batch of hummus (or 16 oz prepared)
  • 1 – 14 oz can of artichoke hearts, drained
  • 3/4 cup roasted red pepper
  • 3/4 cup kalamata olives
  • 1 cup feta crumbles

Prepare hummus if making it from scratch.

Chop artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers and olives.

Layer hummus on the bottom of glass dish. Sprinkle artichoke hearts, red peppers, feta cheese and olives over top.

Serve with pita chips, cucumber slices and any other vegetables.  You could also add chopped red onions or tomatoes if desired. A healthy, different crowd pleaser perfect for spring and summer afternoons!

    I am THE hummus girl in my crowd. If people want to talk hummus or want hummus at a party, I am the girl they call. It is really a special calling in life. This is definitely an impressive spin on straightforward hummus. I can not wait to make this for my hummus-loving friends.

    This looks amazing! My problem is I would want to make it at home all for myself and not bring to a party.

    Good luck with the snow, it’s absolutely ridiculous it’s snowing up there when it’s 80 and sunny here!

    I found your blog today when I was searching for pictures of Punch Pizza to use for today’s post… I’m so glad I found it!
    Can’t wait to look through some of your older posts and your TC restaurant list. I have my own but no reviews.
    Cheers!
