This simple layered Mediterranean dip begins with prepared dips found at the grocer. Add a few extras and you have an amazing spread!
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
Chopped Italian Parsley or Mint or both!
Aleppo or Urfa Chilies or Dried Chili Flakes
3 T tahini
4 T olive oil
1 T lemon juice
Optional-olives, drained capers,
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!
