This Greek-inspired hummus dip has 7 tasty layers and comes together in just minutes! Easy, healthy, and crazy delicious!
8 ounces cream cheese (I use reduced fat)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons minced garlic (or garlic powder)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
8 ounces traditional hummus, homemade or store-bought
1/2 red onion, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 medium cucumber, diced
1/3 cup kalamata olives*, sliced
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
optional: 1/4 cup sliced green onions
homemade (recipe below) or store-bought pita chips for serving
4-5 round Greek-style pitas (or other round pitas)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
In a small bowl combine cream cheese (if chilled, you might want to soften it slightly by putting it in the microwave for a few seconds), lemon juice, garlic, and 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning and whisk to combine. Spread mixture in the bottom of your serving dish.
Spread hummus on top of cream cheese mixture. Top with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and feta cheese. Sprinkle green onions on top if desired. Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving.
Preheat oven to 325. Use a pizza cutter to slice the pitas into triangular wedges. Place all pita wedges in a zip lock bag with olive oil. Seal bag and shake to coat.
Spread pita wedges in one layer onto a large baking sheet. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bake 8-10 minutes until pita wedges are crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
