Easy Greek Layer Dip for a Healthy Superbowl Appetizer

4 Feb
Layer all ingredients below, starting with the Hummus, in a clear glass dish and serve with Toasted Pita Chips
  • Hummus, homemade preferably
  • Roasted Red Peppers, chopped
  • Cucumbers, chopped (or Tzatziki)
  • Kalamata Olives, halved

Hummus Recipe:

In a small Cuisinart food processor, chop 1-2 cloves of Garlic (Roasted Garlic mellows the flavor so you could add up to head if you like). Garlic Powder will do if you don’t have cloves.

Add a can of drained Organic Chick Peas, the juice of 1 Lemon, 2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil, thin with a little water until you get the consistency you desire, salt & pepper to taste, optional: Smoked Paprika

Tzatziki Recipe:

In a medium bowl, combine a Cucumber, seeded, then coarsely grated, with 2 cups of Greek Yoghurt, preferably Whole Milk, juice of 1/2 Lemon, 1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil, 1 finely chopped Shallot, 1 finely chopped clove of Garlic, a couple sprigs of fresh Dill, chopped (or about 1/2 – 1 Teaspoon of dried Dill) and Salt & White Pepper.

    This sounds sooooo good Kim. This will definately be one to try and serve to friends. Tzatziki is one of my favorites. I actually love all of the ingredients.
