A few years back, my sister Allison brought this Greek layer dip with tzatziki to our Christmas celebration. It was the perfect addition to our holiday table and looked festive with the red and green colors.

And let me tell you, it was delish. Our family demolished that hummus dip.

Mind you, we are not even a smidgeon Greek (like you couldn’t tell) but I’ve gotta admit – I haven’t stopped thinking about this hummus dip recipe ever since. Yes, I fixate on food. It’s what I do.

But truly, my preoccupation is not without reason…The flavors in this healthy recipe are downright mouth watering!

A hummus dip on its own is okay, but that’s for like – I don’t know….Tuesday.

So let’s get making this party dip instead, shall we?

One of the reasons you’ll love this easy recipe is because there is no cooking required. Chop a few veggies, grab a few ingredients from the grocery store and you are sitting pretty, my friends!

If you want to go the extra mile, you can even make your own hummus. It’s not hard, I promise!

Ingredients in Layered Hummus Dip

Let’s talk for a quick second about this Mediterranean dip. I mean, if there was such a thing as Greek nacho dip, this would be it!

  • Vegetables – cucumber, a classic in Greek food plus cherry or grape tomatoes and slivered red onion for a little bite
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • lemon juice to add some brightness
  • Spices – oregano, garlic, dill, parsley, salt & pepper
  • tangy and cool Greek yogurt
  • Creamy, velvety hummus
  • Kalamata olives for a salty and briny bite
  • Feta for a rich, tangy flavor

Okay, hummus with feta cheese is amazing. But adding all these other related flavors….YUM!!!

How to Make Greek Hummus Dip

Like I said, this recipe is more about assembly than cooking anything. And as usual, I have shortcut recommendations for you!

Step 1: Get your veggies going

You’ll dice half the cucumber and add tomatoes, red onion, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder and half the oregano. Give it a tiny shower of some salt and pepper and stir to combine.

Whew! We’re practically halfway done!

Step 2: Make the cucumber dip, officially known as tzatziki sauce

If you’ve ever had a gyro (pronounced year-oh, not gi-roh, in case you’re wondering), then you’ve probably had this tasty Greek yogurt based sauce.

To make the cucumber sauce shred cucumber, add Greek yogurt, garlic, dill, some more oregano and lemon juice. Again, a dash of salt and pepper.

Stir to combine. Remember, we’re making layered hummus dip here.

Shortcut: if you’re not up for it, you can buy pre-made tzatziki sauce. You know I won’t judge.

Step 3: Spread the hummus. Top with a layer of the Greek yogurt tzatziki mixture.

Use a slotted spoon to drain excess liquid from the seasoned tomato, red onion, and cucumber mixture before spreading on top of the Tzatziki sauce.

Finally, add the Kalamata olives, followed by the crumbled Feta and fresh chopped parsley. Serve with veggies and pita chips for dipping.

Or heck, serve the layered hummus dip with Triscuits. Whatever makes you happy makes me happy!

Notes

For best results, prepare the tomato-cucumber mixture and the Tzatziki sauce the night before to give the flavors a chance to combine. If preparing in advance, cover and store in the refrigerator until just before ready to use.
