Seven Layer Crazy Greek Dip

Every time I make something I always try and take pictures to post on my blog...
Unfortunately my cute little Asian niece (Tiffanie's daughter aka Wonton) 
loves Aunt Amy's camera and always kills the battery! 
So like many of my recipes I get my inspiration from my many bloggers that I follow and pinterest (online crack).
I dont have many of my own creations yet but this is why I food blog.
This Seven Layer Crazy Greek Dip is from Jessica's Blog "How Sweet It Is"
IF you want your crowd to compliment you MAKE THIS DIP!
I know we all go to parties and I always always see 7 Layer Mexican Dip I love how she kicked it up a few notches! Enjoy this recipe as much as I did for your next dinner party!

Seven Layer Greek Dip makes one giant bowlful, probably serves over 10 people
1 1/2 cups hummus of your choice
1 15-ounce can of kalamata olives, drained and chopped
1 15-ounce can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 large cucumber, peeled and chopped
4 ounces of feta (or 4 ounces of plain feta, crumbled)
1 1/3 cups greek yogurt
3 tablespoons fresh dill
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped cucumber
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper

In a bowl, combine yogurt, dill, garlic, 3 tablespoons of cucumber, olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper and mix. Grab a large bowl or plate and begin layering ingredients: the yogurt tzatziki, the chopped olives, the hummus, the chopped artichoke hearts, the crazy feta, and the tomatoes and cucumber. You can layer it however you’d like and use other ingredients to make it your own. I did sprinkle my cucumber and tomato with some salt and pepper for flavor, but the rest of the dip was VERY flavorful.

Serve with pita chips or use in wraps and sandwiches.

Note: if you want to make this dip even more enjoyable, you could add some ground lamb!


**I served this with fresh whole wheat pita that I cut in 8 pieces. Placed them in the oven for warmth and served on a platter!

Please Check Out Jessica's Blog! She has many a great recipes, I loved this one and I am sure many of her's are just as awesome!

  15. Thank you for including the link to the seven layer crazy Greek dip creator. The combination of hummus and feta sounds like it would make for a fantastic dip. It would seem that pita chips would go very well with this dip, especially at a party considering that the portion of the dip is truly meant for a gathering.
