Easy 7-Layer Greek Hummus Dip

So delicious, this layered Greek hummus dip is the perfect healthy snack or appetizer. Hummus, yogurt, spinach, feta…all sorts of good things going on here!

Layered Greek Hummus Dip

Guys, I know I already waxed poetic about my love for Greek-style food just a few weeks ago with this stellar Instant Pot tender Greek pork recipe.

But continuing on that love train, I can’t help but share one of my new, favorite obsessions: this layered Greek yogurt hummus dip.

It is crazy delicious…and so easy, you’ll be dipping in pita chips right and left in just minutes.

My friend, Mel, sent me a variation of this recipe last year, and I’ve been making it nonstop.

My favorite? An individual-sized version for a quick (and super tasty) lunch.

Layered Greek Hummus Dip

A few months ago, I made it for a church party, and it was wildly popular (that’s saying a lot since there was also an epic chocolate fountain at said party).

It goes without saying that the variations on this hummus dip are nearly endless.

Swap out ingredients you don’t like and add in the ones you do!

Cherry tomatoes for (or in addition to) the roasted red peppers, maybe?

A smattering of chopped red onion to complement the other flavors?

What about black or kalamata olives for a salty punch?

You really can’t go wrong with this easy and healthy hummus dip. It’s perfect for a party appetizer or just for general snacking.

If you are anything like me, “general snacking” is a very serious and important part of daily routines.

The only misstep will be if you omit the seasoning from the 7-layer lineup.

It’s really important.

No matter if you opt for Greek seasoning, every day salt and pepper, or go off the grid with an Italian herb seasoning (ahem, that has happened here, and it’s delicious)…this dip is changed in extraordinary ways by that little pop of flavor.

A couple other notes, 1) if you haven’t ever bought feta cheese in a block (vs already crumbled), try snagging some for this recipe!

I’ve always found it at Trader Joe’s (a 40 minute drive) but miracle upon miracle, I spied it the other day at my smalltown grocery store…and then tried to ignore the awkward stares of other shoppers while I executed a seriously bad cartwheel to celebrate my excitement.

Block feta that you crumble yourself is so creamy and soft and delicious.

2) storebought or homemade hummus is going to work great here. A flavored hummus would be fantastic, I’m sure, as well! Roasted red pepper hummus? Zucchini hummus?

For storebought brands, I’m particularly fond of the roasted garlic hummus at Costco or the beet hummus (ridiculously good) from Trader Joe’s.

Easy 7-Layer Greek Hummus Dip

Yield: Serves 8-10 as an appetizer
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups hummus (storebought or homemade)
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Sprinkle of Greek or other herb seasoning (see note)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups chopped baby spinach
  • 1 cup chopped roasted red peppers (or cherry tomatoes…or both!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Spread hummus on a plate or serving platter. Dollop the yogurt across the top and spread into a somewhat even layer (doesn't have to be perfect).
  2. Sprinkle seasoning of choice (see note) lightly over the top of the yogurt.
  3. Top with chopped spinach, roasted red peppers, cucumbers and feta cheese. Sprinkle additional seasoning over the top, if desired.
  4. Serve immediately (can chill for an hour or so before serving but any longer and the yogurt will have a tendency to put off a bit of liquid/whey).

Notes

This dip is very versatile - you could easily sub out the roasted red peppers for cherry tomatoes, baby kale instead of spinach, leave off ingredients you don't care for and add ones you love (think: olives, lemon zest, red onion, other veggies).

I've made this with homemade hummus, and it's also crazy delicious with the roasted garlic hummus from Costco. I highly recommend using block feta cheese if you can find it (crumble it yourself vs buying it already crumbled); it is so creamy and delicious. 

This quick appetizer really benefits from a light dusting of seasoning. I've used an Italian herb blend (yeah, yeah, not terribly Greek-ish in flavor, but it was delicious) and on another batch, I did a combo of coarse salt, coarse pepper, and garlic powder. A Greek seasoning would be phenomenal, too. The following info is also on my favorite feta dip post: I keep a simple homemade Greek seasoning in a repurposed spice jar in my pantry. I use this basic recipe on allrecipes.com, omitting the cornstarch, dialing down the cinnamon a bit (probably a heaping 1/2 teaspoon) and I don’t blend it – I just combine in the jar.

I don't recommend making this too far in advance (maybe just a couple of hours); the yogurt will give off liquid/whey as it sits, so I like to make and serve this within a few hours. A lot will depend on the thickness/brand of yogurt.
