Greek Dip with 7 Plus Layers

This healthy Greek dip recipe has 7 plus layers. But, I’ll show you how to pile it even higher or make short stacks. It all depends on what’s in the fridge and your favorite ingredients. 

Greek Dip with 7 Plus Layers

Hello dip lovers!

This pretty looking combination of Greek-inspired ingredients was thoroughly enjoyed as we watched the Oscars this past weekend. I enjoyed the leftovers in a wrap the next day. It’s truly a guilt-free pleasure!

Endless Possibilities for Layered Greek Dip

I’m going to walk you through the dip I made and then overload your senses and taste buds with endless possibilities to customize it.

Easy Hummus Recipe

The base of this dip is hummus. Buy a prepared container from the grocery store or whip up your favorite homemade version. This one is based on the 5-Minute Hummus recipe at Real Simple.

Yogurt Dill or Tzitzaki Sauce

The second layer is yogurt dill sauce or “Tzatziki Sauce” which sounds much fancier…don’t you agree?! It’s a simple mixture of yogurt (plain or Greek,) lemon juice, garlic and dill. By the way, Spicy Carrot Fries are absolutely delicious dipped in this sauce.

Greek Dip with 7 Plus Layers

The “wet” hummus and yogurt dill sauce layers will meld and liven up all the other ingredients you pile on top. This is the fun part.

Starting at the bottom, the layers in the the Greek dip pictured are:

  • Layer 3 – Diced cucumber
  • Layer 4 – Diced red onion
  • Layer 5 – Diced tomato
  • Layer 6 – Chopped artichoke hearts
  • Layer 7 – Crumbled feta cheese
  • Layer 8 – Sliced green onion

Greek Layer Dip

But, why stop there? What about layers of:

  • Beans or chick peas
  • Red, green or yellow peppers
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Kalamata olives
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Chopped baby spinach
  • Quinoa or rice
  • Or, just about any veggie that can be eaten raw, such as carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms or broccoli

And toppings like parsley, oregano, mint and nuts.

You are only limited by your imagination and maybe the size of your bowl. In case you’re wondering, I used a 7 inch by 3 inch round bowl and there was room for about 1 more layer.

And, then there is the matter of dippers. Chips, rice crackers, pita bread…lettuce cups. If you have any leftovers, it makes a delicious wrap.
