'Mediterranean' Layer Dip


Mediterranean is in quotation marks in the title because I had to make a few changes with this recipe and without feta or olives, its not all that Mediterranean to me. Note to self: grocery shopping the day after a holiday weekend at a chain grocery store is not a good idea. The grocery store was out of tzatziki (or I couldn't find it) and feta cheese so I changed it to garlic hummus and mozzarella cheese. I also chose to leave the olives out as I've never liked olives.

This recipe comes from Melissa at I was Born to Cook.  I figured I'd be the only one eating this, so I scaled the recipe way back and now I'm kind of regretting it. Its delicious!

    • 2 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
    • 1/3 cup garlic roasted hummus
    • 1/4 cucumber, chopped
    • 1/4 tomato, chopped
    • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1 tsp. oregano

1. Mix together the cream cheese and hummus (or tzatziki) and spread onto the bottom of a small dish.
2. Top with cucumbers, tomato, mozzarella and oregano.
3. Chill for 20-30 minutes before serving.

I snacked on this with carrot sticks, celery and Special K cracker chips. I wish we weren't tracking calories so I could eat more of this, but I've met my limit for today. I can't wait to have some tomorrow for lunch.
