Greek Layer Dip, Tzatziki & Pita Chips

When I received a coupon for a Sabra product from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I knew I wanted to blog about something more than my undying love of Sabra hummus. Creamy, smooth… yumm. My favorite varieties are classic and roasted red pepper. I’ve tried homemade hummus before, but it’s nearly impossible to replicate the texture of Sabra.

Now that I’ve professed my love, I will share my creation. I knew I wanted to make a dip. I toyed around with the idea of a cream cheese based dip, but quickly put that thought aside. Other Mediterranean dishes came to mind.. tzatziki, greek salad.. Greek Layer Dip? YES! The flavor combination was perfection.

Greek Layer Dip

Greek Layer Dip, Tzatziki & Pita Chips
 
Ingredients
  • 10 oz. container Sabra classic hummus
  • 1 Tzatziki recipe (see below) OR 1 cup store-bought tzatziki
  • Handful lettuce shreds
  • 1 small Roma tomato, seeded and diced
  • ½ medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, diced, and dried with a paper towel
  • 2 oz. feta cheese crumbles
  • Optional: red onion, green pepper, olives
Instructions
  1. Spread hummus in the bottom of a glass dish (the one I used holds about 5 cups, or 1.25 quarts)
  2. Layer remaining ingredients, in order. Tada! Ready to serve.
Notes
The recipe below is only intended for a handful of people. If you're taking this to a party, double it. Also, this is something you need to make the day of! If you let it sit overnight the cucumber, tomato, and lettuce will make it watery.

 

I made homemade Tzatziki because it was something I’d never done before. A store-bought variety would work just as well, and would make assembling the dip that much faster, but I never do things the easy way (Okay, that’s a lie, but we’re going to go with it for now). Thanks for the suggestions on Facebook!
Tzatziki Recipe
Ingredients
Makes about 1 cup

7 oz. Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, finely grated, and water pressed out with paper towels
1 tsp minced garlic
a large pinch of chopped fresh dill
Directions
  • Fold ingredients into yogurt. Enjoy!
And because that really wasn’t enough effort, I made homemade pita chips, too! Little bit of olive oil and some Zataran’s Big & Zesty Seasoning. Pop in the oven at 375 for a few minutes on each side, until the edges start to brown slightly.
