Greek Layer Dip

For way too long I thought there were two kinds of appetizers: 1. decadent, delicious ones and 2. less-than-exciting healthy ones, generally a veggie tray.

And then I discovered hummus. And then I discovered fancified hummus as inspired by 1990s Seven Layer Mexican Dip. Suddenly, there was a new category called Maybe Veggies Can Meet A Bit of Decadence.
Really this is all you need to know: Hummus. Simplified Tzatziki Sauce. Cucumber. Tomato. Black Olives. AND Feta.

It's a really refreshing  way to transition in between lake time and dinnertime in Alabama summertime humidity.

Greek Layer Dip

1 cup Greek Yogurt
1 tsp. Dill (dried or fresh)
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
8 oz. Hummus
1 cup Cucumber, chopped
1 cup Tomato, chopped
1/4 cup sliced Black Olives
1/4 cup crumbled Feta Cheese

In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, dill and garlic. Set aside.

Spread hummus in the bottom of an 8-by-8-inch glass dish or other size to your liking. Spread yogurt mixture on top of hummus. Sprinkle remaining ingredients on top. You can adjust the measurements to your liking.

Serve with pita chips. This dip is best if you serve it the day you make it; the yogurt can get a little watery after Day One but it still tastes good.
