Move over Mexican layer dip! There’s a new sheriff in town. This 5-layer Greek Dip might only have 5 ingredients, but you won’t believe how delicious it is! For it you’ll need hummus, feta cheese, Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and olives. That’s it!
What Can You Eat This Dip With?
You can eat this dip with just about anything! It’s great with pita chips, pita bread, veggies, or even on a sandwich. It would even make a yummy topping on a gyro or help jazz up a boring salad. And, the best part is it’s a super easy appetizer to make for any party you’re hosting or attending. You can make it even easier with pre-chopped veggies from your local grocery store and a bag of washed and ready-to-eat Romaine lettuce! It serves four people with the current ingredient list, but you can easily double or triple the recipe.
Can I Make the 5-Layer Greek Dip Ahead of Time?
Yes! One of the great things about this dip is you can make it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for about two days. However, don’t add the lettuce layer until you are ready to serve it so it doesn’t wilt.
The best method for keeping chopped lettuce fresh is to store it in a ziplock bag with a damp paper towel. Then, when you are ready to serve your dip, remove the damp paper towel, and if there is any excess water, pour the lettuce onto a dry paper towel to drain it off before adding to the top of your dip.
