5 Layer Hummus Dip

When I planned to have a party over this past weekend, I made it a point to have as many healthy recipes as their unhealthy counterparts. I shared a pretty unhealthy one with you yesterday so I thought it only fair to share a healthier choice today.

This is something you can quickly and easily whip up for a crowd and it’s perfect any time of the year. It’s something that I’d love to make for the holidays but I’m fairly certain no one in my family would touch hummus with a 5 foot pole. So I get stuck serving these things to my friends.

Which didn’t exactly work out either, but read on for that.

    • 10 oz. hummus (flavor of your choice)
    • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
    • 1 small cucumber, diced
    • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
    • 1/2 cup feta cheese 

1. Spread the hummus in an even layer in the bottom of a serving dish. Layer the onions on top, followed by the cucumbers, then the tomatoes and finally the feta cheese.

*Recipe can be made a few hours in advance: cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate.

I am not a fan of olives or artichokes which originally were in this recipe making it a 7 layer dip. I opted to leave them out and go for a smaller 5 layer version. Unfortunately none of my friends were interested in eating this. I had higher hopes for the recipe, thinking they would like it better than my family but apparently not.

I did snag a few bites of this while prepping it, and as someone who likes hummus, I really enjoyed this. It just isn’t something I would take the effort to make for myself.

  1. I love this type of healthy food and have made something similar, but I would layer it on a ready made pizza shell (Boboli) and slice it up! Delish!
