How to Make Mediterranean Seven Layer Dip

After making a Tex-Mex inspired seven layer dip and realizing there were 185,220 possible variations, my mind went wild. On top of the traditional Tex Mex layer possibilities, there are dozens of other culinary traditions that could inspire a seven layer dip. For example, barbecue, South Asian, Californian, and Mediterranean, which I recently made.

I chose a seven layer Meditteranean dip, because it sounded delicious and because it’s healthy.¬†After all that dip eating last week, the Dipstock diet has officially begun.

I made this seven-layer dip for a dip party with friends, which left Jason (the husband) a little sad. He’s liked all of the dips I’ve made (at least that’s what he says), so I left him a mini seven-layer Mediterranean dip. This got me thinking…could we be packing dips for lunch? Heck, ya.

  1. This dip looks delicious and refreshing with all of the yummy veggies in it. I think I will make this when we have visitors in town next weekend! Thanks!! You could even switch it up and use babaganoush instead of humus!

  2. I love Mexican layer lip (I could eat it every single weekend). So needless to say, I was excited to see this new Mediterranean variety! My husband and I adore those flavors, so I know we will love this too!

  3. Baba ghanoush would definitely work…but not for me. I’m not the biggest fan.

    Glad to hear you all like the recipe. It’s gone, but I’ve definitely been thinking about making more. Yum.

  4. I love this idea for a seven layer dip…I always just think of the Mexican version, but now I can see there are tons and tons of possibilities!!
