Picnic weather is upon us! This Mediterranean Hummus Dip is the perfect dish to whip up for all of your al fresco activities. It’s light and refreshing, but still satiating enough to enjoy as part of a meal.

The best part is how quick it comes together. We’re talking just 15-minutes. That means less time in the kitchen so you can spend more time outside with loved ones.

Three Layer Mediterranean Hummus Dip Ingredients

  • Hummus- Using store-bought hummus helps this recipe come together quickly. I tend to go for original or garlic so that it doesn’t distract too much from the other flavors.
  • Greek Yogurt- To keep the recipe dairy-free, I opt for Kite Hill’s almond milk Greek yogurt. However, any kind of Greek yogurt will work, just make sure it is plain and unsweetened.
  • Lemon Juice- Fresh squeezed lemon juice gets mixed with the yogurt for a tart and tangy tzatziki.
  • Garlic Powder- To keep the recipe easy, I opt for garlic powder because I kind of hate peeling garlic. But fresh minced garlic is an option, if that’s what you prefer.
  • Fresh Dill- Chopped fresh dill is essential for the yogurt tzatziki layer.
  • Tomatoes- I diced cherry tomatoes but feel free to use any variety of tomatoes that you have on hand.
  • Cucumber- Diced cucumber is added to the top layer (rather than the tzatziki) to keep the bottom layer from becoming watery.
  • Olives- Kalamata olives lend to the Mediterranean flair of the dip. Be sure they are pitted.
  • Feta- Crumbled feta is layered on top with the vegetables for a pop of flavor. I like Violife dairy-free feta cheese to keep the recipe vegan.
  • Parsley- Last but not least, fresh parsley is spinrkled on top for even more herby goodness. While you could technically skip it, I personally wouldn’t as I love the earthy scent it adds to the dip.

Also optional (but recommended) is serving it with a crisp white wine like Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. The tangy flavors pair really well with a slightly acidic and fruity wine. All together it makes for a cool and refreshing option to complement a warm summer day. Cheers to summertime, friends!
