Healthy Greek Layer Dip

 Sometimes I struggle to stay on track when an event comes up. It doesn’t even have to be a big event-if there are snacks, I will partake. 

I had been doing really good so far this year, eating clean and working out daily so when my monthly book club meeting was coming up, I started looking for a healthier dish to bring. (It helped that a fellow member vowed to stay on track with me at the meeting. I need all the support I can get!) 

I decided on a Greek layer dip and it was amazing! We ate almost all of it! Even the girls who weren’t watching their food intake raved about it! So here’s the recipe…

  • 1-10 oz container of garlic hummus
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (mmmm protein)
  • 1T  dried dill
  • 1T lemon juice 
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes-quartered
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 cup chopped lala maya olives
  • 1/3 cup goat cheese
  • Parsley for garnish

First, mix the Greek yogurt, dill and lemon juice together and set aside.

Spread garlic hummus on the bottom of an 8×8 dish then dollop the Greek yogurt mix on top and spread even to form the second layer. Then top with everything else, sprinkling parsley on the top to garnish. 

  
I served it with cucumber slices (and also brought pita chips for everyone else) Between my dip and the delicious low carb pinwheels that my dieting-partner-in-crime brought, it was easy to stay on track. I’ll be bringing this to many a party from now on!

   
See the nice little layers? And the cute scribble on my cutting board from my child.

   
Seven of us devoured this!
