I know, I know. When you think 7-Layer Dip you don’t immediately think Mediterranean 7-Layer Dip. These Mexican Individual Seven Layer Dips are the most popular recipe of all-time on this blog and they are well loved.

But imagine you don’t love Mexican food. Uh, sorry. We definitely cannot be friends…ever. Maybe I’ll forgive you if you make this Mediterranean 7-Layer Dip. I made this dip today to represent Greece for our Winter Olympics recipe share and giveaway (see below).

You know how during the holidays, everyone brings the ham and cheese sliders to every potluck and get together? Well this dip was the appetizer of the Christmas season last year.

My friend Karin gave me the recipe after I inhaled it at Bunko. Her friend who lived in Jordan gave this 7-Layer Mediterranean Dip recipe to her so its credibility and authenticity are spot on.

Then we had it again at another Bunko, a baptism, and a Christmas party. So you want to make this!

Homemade tzatziki sauce – not that hard and oh so good. If you want to buy it, I will not get mad at you. Trader Joe’s has a really good one that I like.

Homemade hummus – in my opinion it’s way better than the store bought stuff. Way better. It just tastes so fresh.

So now that we have layer one and two, layer 3-7 are as follows: diced cucumber, tomato, green onions, feta, and parsley.

If you don’t have parsley on hand you can skip that. And serve it with pita chips. Promise me. Or sliced cucumbers if you’re down like that.
