10 Layer Greek Dip
Too much of a good thing can be exactly that: too much. For example, I once spent a weekend with some friends on a weekend beer, meat, cheese extravaganza. By the end of it, I recall going to a game-day party and craving the lettuce off the top of somebody else’s taco dip. My body was like, “VEGGIES PLEASE.”
So, when planning for a big food-centered event like a certain football game this weekend, I think it’s important to serve something super colorful and healthy along with the wings, queso, and whatever else graces your table.
This 10 Layer Greek dip is perfect. It’s pretty straightforward to toss together, has loads of crunchy veggies, and great Mediterranean flavors. It’s so good that my family honestly almost made a dinner out of it!
I like to serve this dip with Simply 7 Quinoa Chips which are really light and crispy but still hold up to the dip. If you’ve never tried them, they are excellent and come in a few different flavors!
1) In a medium bowl, stir together hummus, Greek yogurt, garlic powder, olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Spread that mixture out in an 8×8 baking dish or other serving dish.
2) Dice all the veggies and sprinkle them on the hummus base in any order you like. I like to end with crumbled feta and parsley on top.
3) Serve with chips!

The base of this dip is awesome. Instead of something heavy like cream cheese, it’s a mix of hummus, Greek yogurt, olive oil, and some simple spices. Trust me that it’s delicious!
This dip is mostly just chopping and it doesn’t totally matter what order you do the layering. Here’s my order though!
First is the crunchy green peppers and cucumber. Be sure to scoop out the seeds in the cucumber (too much water).
Next layer is chopped artichokes and olives! Be sure to get the artichokes that are in water not in oil.
Now for some color! Add grape tomatoes and chopped banana peppers!
And finally some feta and fresh parsley! How could you not love the colors here?!
This dip can obviously be made well in advance, but I wouldn’t go for longer than a day in advance as some of the veggies start to lose their luster after a day or so. Make it today though and it’ll be perfect for tomorrow’s game!
It’s a total winner of a dip.
