7 Layer Greek Hummus

The first time I was introduced to kalamata olives was about a year and a half ago at my bestie cousin’s wedding in California.We ate at an Italian restaurant and our first course was a salad straight from heaven. I don’t remember a single other thing we ate that night. And that is including dessert, people. I don’t remember dessert. That never happens. I have a memory like a shark (is that a thing? it is now)  and I’m addicted to sugar so you can see why something wild must have happened in order for me to forget what kind of dessert was served.

That Greek-inspired salad was unbelievably good. When the entree was served, I did a fantastic job of ignoring it and devoting my entire attention to the salad. I’ve never been a fan of olives because they have a metallic taste I’ve never cared for. But the kalamata olives on that salad were were rocking my world. A little bit briny and extra salty… I could eat those things like candy. The moment I got home I bought a bottle and I’ve kept them stocked in my fridge ever since. They’re my favorite part of this 7 Layer Greek Hummus.

Ingredients

  • 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

Pita Chips

  • 4-5 round Greek-style pitas (or other round pitas)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • 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.

Pita Chips

  • 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.

Notes

*These are a Greek-style olive that can be found near the traditional black olives at your grocery store.

I’m pretty sure anything Greek is the perfect party recipe. But dippable? LOVE it. Pita chips are my favorite chip ever so this dip would be gone with me around!

    Dippability makes EVERYTHING better 🙂

I don’t like olives but I think I should try these ones 🙂 this looks amazing, what I super idea.

    My husband isn’t a fan of them (he’s crazy!) but he just pushed them to the side and went to town on this dip anyway – so you’ll probably like it either way!! 🙂

Oh my gosh this looks delicious! Pinned and can’t wait to try!! 🙂

This dip looks delicious! What an inventive take on the classic 7-layer dip. It took me a very, very long time to warm up to kalamata olives, but now I love them exactly because of the salty, briny flavor you describe.

    That salty taste gets me every time! In a weird way it kind of reminds me of salt & vinegar chips – they have such a strong salty flavor and I can’t get enough of them! Thanks Jamie! 🙂

Is this 7 layer Greek humus dip supposed to be a take on that wonderful salad or is it the appetizer you had? If it’s the latter, where’s the salad recipe ? Just askin’. 🙂
