Easy Greek Dip


Some of the best things are the easiest.

And that's awesome, right?

This dip opened my eyes to how such simple ingredients, layered together make such a flavorful impact and its pretty!

I know, sometimes I'm late to the party, similar recipes have been going around on Pinterest for years. 

But hey, at least I finally caught on!


It's so easy to put together and its awesome served with crostini, pita, even crackers or veggies. 

And.....

It's healty, low fat, and gluten free! 

Tasty hummus (store bought) is layered with chopped spinach, tomatoes, green onions, olives, feta cheese and fresh parsley. Coated in heart healthy extra virgin olive oil and seasonings, it's hard to stop eating it. 



And that's okay! Scoop away.





INGREDIENTS:
12-16 oz. Hummus, I used a spinach artichoke-yum!
1 cup diced tomatoes, blotted dry
1/2 cup diced green onions
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/2 cup chopped olives-black, kalamata or my new fav Castelvetrano
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dry oregano
1/2 tsp powdered garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper 

DIRECTIONS:

On a shallow platter like dish, spread the hummus into an even layer, avoiding the edge by about 1-2".
Sprinkle the tomatoes evenly over this.
Next sprinkle the spinach, then the olives, then the green onions.
Drizzle this with the extra virgin olive oil.
Crumble the feta over all and sprinkle the parsley on the feta. 
Mix the oregano, garlic, salt and pepper and sprinkle over all. 

DIP IN!



Enjoy!
