My Big Fat Greek Layered Dip

My Big Fat Greek Layered Dip
1 10-oz. container of hummus
1 12-oz. jar artichokes, drained and chopped
1 ½ cups tzatziki*
1 14-oz. can black olives, drained and quartered
½ English cucumber, chopped
1 5-oz. container feta cheese
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

Using a small trifle dish or large glass pie plate, layer all ingredients in order listed (starting with hummus on the bottom and ending with tomatoes on the top).

Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Serve with pita crisps or fresh pita cut into wedges.

*you can buy tzatziki in most high-end grocery stores.  If you can’t find it there, stop by your favorite Greek restaurant or diner and ask to buy some.  If none of that works out for you, make your own like I did…

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh or ¾ teaspoon dried dill
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup seeded cucumber, minced
Drizzle of olive oil

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
