Skinny Greek Layer Dip

We’re coming up on a long weekend! Pull out the Greek Layer Dip, pass the pita chips, and let’s just call it Friday already.

Skinny Greek Layer Dip made with hummus. Absolutely delicious!_

All week, I’ve felt summer anticipation growing around me, the way static amplifies in the air before a thunderstorm. From the grocery store, to the gym, to the doctor’s office, I can sense a general antsyness in the atmosphere, as if we’re all stuck back at our back on the last day of fourth grade, waiting for the bell to set us free. Please don’t make me sit still a moment longer—set me loose in the backyard with lawn games, a grapefruit margarita, and a giant plate of this Greek Layer Dip.

On Tuesday, I had the nerve to introduce Asian Ramen Salad as the ultimate potluck side dish, and today I’m continuing the bravado and declaring layer dip the ultimate potluck appetizer. While the classic Mexican seven-layer dip will forever have a special place in my heart (and stomach), I’m completely hooked on this Greek twist. Made with hummus, Greek yogurt, Mediterranean-inspired veggies, feta, and olives, it’s salty, tangy, creamy, crunchy, and totally habit-forming. Grab your pita chips and settle in for a serious munch session.
