Layered Greek Dip



I made this for my book club the other night. Its a different twist on the mexican layered chip dip - its layered deliciousness gone greek!!! I found this recipe on RecipeGirl's website! I served it with Pita chips and it was a hit!!


8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1t. dried italian seasoning
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 c. prepared hummus ( I used the roasted red pepper hummus from Costco)
1 c. chopped cucumber
1 c. chopped tomato
1/2 c. pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese
1/3 c. sliced green onions
Pita Chips

Cream together cream cheese, lemon juice, italian seasoning, and garlic until smooth and well combined. Spread mixture into a deep 9 inch pie plate or oval platter. Spread hummus on top of cream cheese layer. Sprinkle on the chopped veggies, cheese, and onions. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours. Serve with pita chips!
***I was going to also try this substituting sour cream for the cream cheese.....****

We totally loved this too. It seems like such a simple concept to make a dip layered w/ hummus and cream cheese and all of the veggies, but of course I never thought to make it up myself!
