7 Layer Greek Dip

It's nearing the end of summer, but there's still lots of time to use those fresh veggies. I love the flavors of Greek food and this dip will fit perfectly into that category. I have made this low-calorie dip several times over this past season and it's been a hit.  It's simple and easy to make. Prepare the ingredients ahead of time and layer it just shortly before serving as the cucumbers tend to get watery if they sit too long.

Seven Layer Greek Dip
  • 8 ounces store-bought hummus
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, with or without fat
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 1 cup English cucumber 1/2 inch dice
  • 1 cup sweet cherry bell tomatoes 1/2 inch dice
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
  1. Combine yogurt, dill, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Set aside.
  2. Chop and prepare your vegetables and assemble just prior to serving.
  3. In a 7x11 or your favorite serving dish, layer the hummus, yogurt mixture, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, feta, and olives.
  4. I have also prepared it earlier and carefully drained the excess water.
  5. Serve together with whole grain pita chips or taco chips.
It's a perfect dish to serve prior to supper or to end off an evening around a campfire.


  1. What a great combination of flavours!

  2. Wow, that looks and sounds delicious! I just ran down the ingredient list, but the only ingredient I have on hand is feta...I'll save this one for after my next grocery trip ;)

  3. This dip is wonderful.I have been making something similar for years and it always disappears. Serve with pita chips or the heavy tortilla chips---tostito gold--- and sliced vegetables

  4. I dislike when people comment about a recipe before they try it, that is of no value to anyone. I enjoy your recipes and the comments from people who have actually made the recipe
