MEDITERRANEAN 7-LAYER DIP
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.

I stumbled across this recipe a few years ago and recently made this dish (again) for a party. During the party I was asked for the recipe. Wanting to
send him the original recipe, I found myself on your site.

So glad I finally made this… then again and again… and again haha. Once you make it you realize how easy it is, and how you can do a variety of things with it, and I did one of the suggestions from the comments to use kalamata olives which i love. For the bottom layer, i have used store bought or Zoe’s tzatziki or sometimes i just used cream cheese mixed with fresh dill, and a little ranch seasoning, you just can’t go wrong with changing this up …. I just love this so much… thank you for sharing recipe.
So happy you love it!
Love it. Send more recipes like this. Healthy and delish:)
How do you make homemade Tzatziki?
Sorry if that was misleading. The cream cheese layer has the flavors of tzatziki. That’s what I’m referring to.
Made this but added slice kalamata olives because well…olives!!
Sorry forgot my stars!!! Super yummy!
Hope you loved it!
Made this for dinner at a friend’s house. Even the people who “don’t like hummus” couldn’t stop eating it. It’s a great dish! Paired with pita chips or tostitos scoops.
I mean it really is fabulous!
I made this for a beach happy hour this weekend. OMG it was such a huge hit! Everyone loved the freshness of this dip. I have decided to add it to the menu for my son’s engagement party at the end of July . . . I never knew making hummus was this easy!!
It’s a little work but I’m glad you like it as much as we do.
I’m totally loving these, It’s make me hungry. Yummmyy
This is such a fun twist on the original 7-Layer Dip! I love the different layers. Perfectly Mediterranean
YUM! This dip looks incredible! I need this in my life!
Hey girl hey!!
Oh yes! I can hardly wait to give this a try! It looks flawless. I give it 5-Stars on ingredients (dead-on) and presentation alone!
Haha. I appreciate that.
This looks delicious! My daughter is becoming interested in preparing dishes on her own. If I were to have her take an easier approach and use store bought hummus and tzatziki, what size containers would be a substitute for the amounts you would need? Thanks!
Ooh that would be hard to say. I would say 8 ounces of each.
hey girl- this dip looks so yummy!
