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-tatapired 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.

Skinny Greek Layer Dip. Perfect appetizer or snack!

In addition to its addictive taste and texture, I love this Greek Layer Dip, because it’s super healthy without tasting like a “skinny” dip. The ingredients are simple and wholesome, which is helpful to remind yourself when this dish is half demolished, and you’re the only person in the room.

Greek Layer Dip is also ultra easy to prepare. Just spread hummus in the bottom of a serving dish, then pile the other six ingredients on top. Done. While plain hummus makes for a clean, classic flavor, feel free to use your favorite hummus variety to customize the Greek Layer Dip as you like. I went with Sabra’s Roasted Garlic (scrumptious!), and next time will be trying it with their Supremely Spicy. If you are hosting a party for a large group, you could even double the recipe, then divide it into two serving dishes, each with a different hummus flavor base.

Today is an ideal opportunity to try this Greek Layer Dip, because it’s National Hummus Day! In celebration, Sabra if offering a special coupon, which you can find right here. Stock up for the long weekend, and let’s get dippy.

Skinny Greek Layer Dip

A healthy Greek version of Mexican 7 layer dip made with hummus, Greek yogurt, cucumbers, tomato, and feta. Serve with pita chips for an appetizer or snack.


Yield: Serves 6-8

Ingredients:


  • 1, 1o-ounce container of hummus, your favorite flavor (I used roasted garlic)

  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • 1/2 cup diced, seeded cucumber

  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

  • Pita chips, carrots, broccoli, sliced bell peppers, or crackers, for serving



Directions:


  1. Spread the hummus in a smooth layer in the bottom of an 8x8-inch square baking dish, a shallow pie dish, or similar serving dish. Dollop the Greek yogurt by small spoonfuls over the top, then gently spread to create a new layer.

  2. Scatter the tomato, cucumber, feta, and olives over the top. Sprinkle with fresh parsley. Refrigerate until ready to serve, then dip with pita chips, crackers, and sliced veggies as desired.


Greek Layer Dip will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  7. Girl! I love that we’re on the same 7-layer dip page today!!! I’ve been loving all of the Greek versions out there lately – I just couldn’t resist taking a Middle Eastern spin on it!! Can I come to your potluck?!? 

  8. This is my kind of dip. Gimme a bag of pita chips and I’ll go to town!

  9. Hurrah for National Hummus Day – though I gotta admit, I wouldn’t have known it if not for your post – and what a tasty dip to celebrate the day with! 
    Hope you are having a wonderful time in NYC! 

  10. what a great idea! i love the colors. 

  11. I LOVE greek food and that looks SO delicious!! :)

  12. This looks wonderful! I love 7 layer dips and never thought about making it before with hummus. Genius! 

  13. Oh heck. Yes. All the flavor with fewer calories. More for meeee!

  14. I could totally demolish this dip by myself!  Have a great trip to NYC!

  15. This sounds delicious Erin, so light and summery :) I love how you used hummus, I didn’t realize yesterday was Hummus Day so I’m going to have to go make up for that now :)

  16. This Greek layer dip sounds so good! I love classic Mediterranean flavors so this dip is perfect for me! 

  17. I’ll take a bowl of dip, and some sunshine and warmth too, please. :) 

  18. I made this dip for lunch for myself and my husband (who is not as healthy of an eater as I am) and it was a hit. He said that it was pretty good and that he will take some in his lunch tomorrow. I had mine with veggies, while he had his with crackers (what we had on hand). Thank you for sharing and I will be sure to make it for our next get together.

  19. Was wondering if chopped scallions would be good on this too?

  20. I made this for a beach party tonight. It was a hit. Simple to make and something different than the usual sour cream, mayo, or cream cheese-based dips. It’s a keeper!!!

  21. These is a very different kind of dip but looks very healthy.

  22. Hi Erin,
    Thanks so much for this great, easy and healthy greek recepie. I know it isn’t summer yet but I made it for my daughter’s Girl Scout greek themed get together and it was a hit. I can’t wait for summer to eat this again so most definitely  I’m going to be making it before then.
    Cheers.

  23. That dip sounds super yummy. I have hummus all the time for lunch. This will be a great way to mix things up.  I’m curious though, have you tried tziki or babaganoush instead of the plain yogurt? 

  24. This looks delicious! Seven layer dips make great midday meals.  Can’t wait to try this. 

  25. It tasted great, and ever so tasty, however it was very watery. I had to consistently drain the dish. 

    • I’m so glad that you loved the flavor, though I’m sorry it was liquidy! Did you fully seed the cucumber (which is important to remove liquid) and make sure to use Greek (vs regular) yogurt? Both of these have a higher water content, which would cause the dip to seem watery. It’s also possible that your tomatoes might have been extra juicy too. If that’s the case, next time I’d suggest letting them drain on a paper towel before adding them to the dip. I hope that helps!

  26. I don’t usually comment of posts, but I just had to let you know how great of a hit this dip was at a friends graduation party for her twin sons. It lasted only maybe 10 minutes. It was gone but not forgotten. Everybody who had it, had to have the recipe. You have a fan for life. Thank You.

  27. Thank you for the great recipe! Making it for my next book club meeting! Can you pls tell me what the herb in the picture is? Parsley? Basil? 

  28. I made this for a birthday potluck party and it went instantly.  I even had people ask me for the recipe.

  29. Hi!  I made this tonight and it was so good!  I used heated up pita bread rather than crackers.  I’m not much of a cook but this was so easy and looked like it could have been ordered at a restaurant.   Thank you!

  30. This was delish and now I like hummus!

  31. I love this dip. It’s my absolute favorite! But I add a little bit of chopped red onion to it as well. And sometimes I omit the cucumbers in the dip and then use sliced cucumbers as “chips” to make it low-carb! 

  32. I don’t see the recipe?!  Would love to make this tonight :)

    • Wrong email

      • Hi Jennifer, you may have already figured this out, but the recipe is located just above the comments section. You can also click “Jump to Recipe” at the top of the post and it’ll take you right there! I hope you enjoy the dip!

  33. I’m wondering if anyone has tried to make this Dairy free? Either not adding the yogurt or using a soy yogurt. Suggestions? Thanks

    • Hi Molly, I haven’t tried to make this recipe dairy free, but I think you could omit the yogurt. If you have a plain soy yogurt you’ve used and enjoyed, I think you could experiment with that here too! And I’d love to hear too if anyone else has any ideas!
