The best way to guarantee at least one healthy option at this weekend’s holiday picnic is to bring one. I typically make my layered taco dip for the 4th of July celebrations every year. It’s loaded with sour cream, cream cheese, cheese & other toppings and it is delicious. This year though I’m focused on more healthy options and made this Mediterranean layered dip instead. Similar concept, but such a better alternative and there is so much flavor!
You will need:
1 1/2 cups hummus
1/2 cup chopped seeded cucumber
1/2 cup chopped red tomato
1/3 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup black sliced olives
1/4 cup sliced artichoke hearts
1. Spread hummus evenly across a platter (I used a standard dinner plate size platter).
2. Top hummus evenly with chopped cucumber, red onion, tomato, olives, artichokes & feta cheese.
3. Serve with plain pita chips, sliced fresh pita bread, corn chips or bagel chips (I serve with plain pita chips).
Happy 4th of July!
