Greek Dip

This creamy Greek Dip is so colorful and healthy and is a cinch to throw together for summer entertaining. I love to serve it with homemade pita chips.

How To Make Greek Dip

To make Greek Dip, I start with a layer of cream cheese mixed with Greek yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, and a little Italian seasoning.

Then I spread a layer of hummus on top. You can use any flavor of hummus that you like. I actually like to use a small container of traditional hummus and one of roasted red pepper hummus.

Then on top of the hummus I sprinkle lots of chopped cucumber, quartered grape tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and fresh dill. Then I drizzle just a little olive oil on top.

Homemade Pita Chips

To make homemade pita chips to serve with it, I cut pita bread into triangles, separate the two layers, spread the side that faced inside with butter, a little garlic salt, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning and bake in a 375 degree oven until hot and crispy.

How To Make Spicy

If you wish to make this appetizer spicy, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the topping.

Make in Advance

Greek Dip can easily be prepared in advance, covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated until needed. It’s creamy, but light and healthy and perfect for sharing at a summer cookout or potluck.

  1. I’m from a German family so I’m fond of German potato salad. The idea having similar flavors with green beans sounds wonderful! This is a great side for a barbecue.
