So...this dip made me extremely happy! My mom has always made this taco dip with refried beans, sour cream and whole bunch of other stuff I completely dislike. However...when I put all those together on a chip they miraculously taste great! This dip actually has stuff that I LOVE and I was able to get 3 people who did not like hummus to eat it and THEY loved it too! This one is a keeper!
Mediterranean Layered Dip
Adapted from Taste of Home Summer Appetizers 2010
2.5 cups hummus
3/4 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
1 cup fresh baby spinach (I didn't have this so I subbed it with some shredded cabbage...good but I'm sure better with spinach!)
3 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
2 T coarsely chopped fresh basil
1 T coarsely chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup black olives
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1. Spread hummus onto a 12-inch round serving platter; top with roasted peppers
2. In a small bowl, combine the spinach, lemon juice, oil, basil and mint. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the spinach mixture over the peppers. Top with cheese, olives and onions.
I served mine with toasted pita slices and tortilla chips. Yum!
