Well, I guess it is official. Now that Mother’s Day and Cinco de Mayo are behind us it’s time to gear up for graduation season and Memorial Day. Man, May is sure a busy month. Our lives are a bit calmer these days, but I do love remembering the college graduations. Bittersweet memories that seem so far away, even though it’s just been 5 years. Wow-they have come a long way and I continue to be so proud of them.

Mother’s Day found us both frolicking in the yard. HAH HAH! Manservant was busy painting my folly and now is considering an opening on Memorial Day, though he did manage to provide a soft opening for me Sunday night.

Yes, this crazy man managed to send me off at 8PM to pick up dinner at 5 Guys while he quickly showered, and set up a very romantic setting in my new, though unfinished folly. Complete with candlelight and a newly painted table on a cute new rug with a vintage picnic basket and ice chest filled with ginger beer and mezcal, he set up a delightful little scene.

He even had a fire burning in a new fire pit down below, and a blanket waiting to keep me warm. Of course it all sounds great except that he was on the phone with his mother during our fast food dinner. Well, nothing can be perfect-but it was still very good. He told me about the rest of his vision to finish this she cave off, and I must say it is quite visionary! Can’t wait to share photos on what I hope will happen very soon…

As I’m hoping to have a GRAND OPENING on Memorial Day, I thought I would share an easy Mediterranean layer dip that is marvelous for a crowd. I quickly made this to take to an event and just grabbed a few photos before I left.

It turned out to be popular, so I decided to bestow this layer dip upon you! No cooking, no recipe set in stone, just a few ingredients that are quite popular right now.

Served with pita chips or flatbread or even more veggies, this dip is not only good for you, it tastes good, too.

Description

This simple layered Mediterranean dip begins with prepared dips found at the grocer. Add a few extras and you have an amazing spread!


Ingredients

Scale

1 32 oz container hummus

1 15 oz can garbanzos (drained and dried)

1 8 oz container of tzatziki

Za’atar, dried thyme, oregano, sumac

European Cucumbers, Peeled, Sliced thin and quartered

Baby Tomatoes of all colors, sliced and quartered

Bermuda onion, finely diced (about 1/3 to 1/2 a cup)

Feta cheese, crumbled

Pine Nuts

Chopped Italian Parsley or Mint or both!

Aleppo or Urfa Chilies or Dried Chili Flakes

Optional Dressing:

3 T tahini

4 T olive oil

1 T lemon juice

Optional-olives, drained capers,


Instructions

On a large platter, spread hummus to cover.

Sprinkle with drained garbanzos. Spread on tzatziki. Sprinkle with za’atar or other seasonings. I am quite liberal with my seasoning so use a lot!

Now is the time to be an artist. Sprinkle on your tomatoes around the platter. Throw on your cucumbers and Bermuda onion.

Sprinkle with feta crumbles. Throw on some pine nuts. You can even saute them if you want them golden. Toss on the parsley and then sprinkle well with your choice of chilies.

Last, but not least, Combine tahini, olive oil and lemon juice. Whisk together well and drizzle over layer dip. This is an optional step, but I feel it adds a ton of flavor.

If you’d like add some olives or capers or even sun dried tomatoes. Artichoke hearts work well as do hearts of palm. Make your own signature recipe!
