layered greek hummus dip

I love the idea of taking something I’ve purchased and turning it into something more. Although I typically make my own hummus, I do like to buy it occasionally when it’s on sale. It’s one of those things that’s easy to transform by adding just a few fresh ingredients and calling it a day.

I’ve been adding cucumber, feta, tomato and kalamata olives to make an easy, healthy dip since I can remember. But I recently spied this version on Our Best Bites, the only difference being a cream cheese layer on the bottom that’s mixed with garlic, greek seasoning and lemon juice. Adding a creamy layer seemed like a great idea so I gave it a shot.

It was really good, although I found that three cloves of garlic added a sharpness that I didn’t care for. It was still a big hit with everyone and my parents, who are visiting for the week from Wisconsin, thought it was great as is. I’ll keep the cream cheese layer from now on but with just two cloves of garlic. The colors in this dip are just gorgeous and since it’s make-ahead it’s great for a party. Crispy pita chips are perfect to serve it with.

And, of course, I had to keep my streak of mini-food going…

    HEE. Mini food is the best. And it’s soooo pretty :D I have a guacamole hummus dip pinned, so I will just add this along. Who can ever eat enough dip? Pass me the pita chip, please…

    Great idea! I’ll probably make my own hummus because I love making it and eat it often! This is perfect for a party or family gathering. Thanks! :)

    I have not added extras to my hummus like this, but coincidentally, I just made hummus this morning and tomorrow is the big game around here– Seahawks vs. 49’ers. I will deflnitely top my hummus with the kalamatas, tomatoes, etc., for some game day food, looks great!
