Middle Eastern Layered Dip
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“This healthy dip recipe has a Middle Eastern twist—cucumbers, tomatoes, feta and olives are layered on top of a creamy base of hummus and a touch of tangy yogurt. A sprinkle of ground sumac adds a fruity, sour flavor. Look for this bright red spice (made from the tart red berries of the Mediterranean sumac bush) in Middle Eastern markets, specialty food shops and online at penzeys.com. Serve the dip with pita chips.”
1 8-ounce container prepared hummus
1 cup nonfat or low-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 cup chopped unpeeled English cucumber
1 medium tomato, chopped
⅓ cup sliced Kalamata olives
⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon sumac (optional; see Tip)
1Spread hummus in a shallow 2-quart dish. Layer yogurt, cucumber, tomato, olives and feta on top. Sprinkle with oregano and sumac (if using) just before serving.
Make Ahead Tip: Assemble up to 1 hour ahead.
The tart red berries of the Mediterranean sumac bush add fruity, sour flavor to many regional dishes. Find ground sumac in Middle Eastern markets, specialty food shops and online at penzeys.com.
