Greek Layer Dip

Need a quick and easy party recipe?
(Read:  Did your husband inform you the night before his office work party that he needed you to make something for him to bring?)

Try this:  Greek Layer Dip + Pita Chips
Easy, healthy, pretty.

What you need:
Family size (or 2 regular size).

I like the Sabra brand...super flavorful, or you can make your own.

Cucumber, seeded
Red pepper
Kalamata olives
Feta cheese
Fresh dill

Grab a big serving tray.
Spread the hummus approximately 1/2-1" thick.
Chop up your veg and sprinkle over the top.
(Save the dill for last.)

(Note:  You "may" have a few leftover ingredients to make yourself a small portion.)

Marvel at the festive red and green holiday colors
and pat yourself on the back.

Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

Serve with pita chips.

I usually like to make my own pita chips...
Cut pitas into triangles,
top with olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder, and a sprinkle of cayenne
and bake at 375 degrees until crisp.
Otherwise, store brands, like Stacy's, are easy and delish!


P.S.  In hindsight, I'm thinking "Crack Dip" (a ranch-cheesy-bacon concoction)
may have been a bigger hit among a group of mostly 50-something Wisconsinites.
Or maybe I'm just secretly hoping for leftovers.
Regardless, I will keep you posted on the co-worker reviews!
