I developed this recipe many years ago as a unique appetizer for a friend’s birthday party. Everyone there raved about it! Little did they know how easy it was to throw together. Recently, Polly made it again, took some new pictures, and then we stuffed ourselves with it at a work meeting. It’s just SO good!

What’s in Greek Dip?

This Greek Dip is full of heart-healthy fats, protein, fiber and antioxidants from the hummus and veggies. The feta cheese provides a nice, tangy, salty bite to top it all off.  Serve it with some Pita chips and you’ve got yourself a killer real food meal or appetizer.

Here is what you’ll need to make it:

  • Hummus – You can use store bought or make your own hummus.
  • Cucumber
  • Red bell pepper
  • Tomato
  • Red onion
  • Feta cheese
  • Juice of a lemon
  • Optional: olives, chopped artichokes, green onion, or roasted red peppers

How Do I Serve and Store Greek Dip?

The fun part about this recipe it looks beautiful in all kinds of serving dishes or bowls. I spread mine out on a ridged dish but it could also be made and stored in a typical 8×8 baking dish like this one. A fun bowl–especially something that is see through–would work, too. Anything people can easily scoop from will work.

When storing, just cover it with plastic wrap or transfer it to a storage container. Greek Dip stays fresh in your fridge for 3-5 days. It can be a great make-ahead appetizer or something to meal prep at the beginning of the week for healthy snacking.

While pita chips are my default choice, they’re far from the only option. Here are some other tasty options that pair well with this Greek Dip.

  • Baby carrots, celery sticks, or bell pepper strips
  • Tortilla chips
  • Pita bread, torn in pieces
  • Hearty crackers, like Triscuits
