Greek 7 layer Dip

Greek Ten Layer Dip

Ok, everyone loves the Mexican 7 Layer Dip….Refried beans, tomatoes, mexican cheese, sour cream, black olives, jalapeños, green onions….One scoop on a crisp tortilla with all of those flavors is absolute heaven! Always a hit and the “Go-To”  for party dips. Now even more so with Football Season in full swing.

I however have created a Greek twist to this classic 7 layer dip….well maybe a total overhaul is a better description. My version is a combination of all the wonderful flavors and dips that are usually eaten alone and are so popular in Greek Mediterranean Restaurants and staples in many Greek households!

My Greek version is actually 10 Layers, no surprise haha!…. we begin with a wonderful Roasted Red Pepper Hummus which takes the place of re-fried beans, topped with fresh chopped tomatoes, scallions, chopped cucumbers, tsasiki ( garlic-cucumber-greek yogurt), pepperoncini sliced, kalamata olives, fresh dill, arugula and feta cheese. Now all you need to do is grab some Stacy’s Pita Chips or Fresh Pita, cut into wedges and heated for dipping. OK, get ready to be the talk of the party with this delicious dip!
