Inspired by the famous heavy hitter Seven Layer Mexican Dip, this slimming dip gets a fresher and lighter twist by layering sour cream with healthy hummus and colorful veggies. It comes together in no time, can hang out in the fridge until ready to serve, and when arranged in a pie plate this beautiful dip is super-portable for party travel.
Serve with your favorite pita chips or fresh veggies like thick strips of colorful bell peppers.
1 (8-ounce) container hummus (or 1 cup homemade)
¾ cup light sour cream (I like Knudsen)
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
¾ cup chopped, seeded tomato
½ cup chopped, peeled, seeded cucumber
¼ cup slivered red onion
¼ cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
3 kalamata olives, chopped
1. Spread the hummus evenly across the bottom of a 9-inch pie or serving plate. Spread the sour cream over the hummus. Sprinkle on the spinach, then the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and feta cheese, topping with chopped kalamata olives. If desired, garnish around the edges with chopped parsley.
2. Cover with plastic wrap or foil, place in refrigerator, and chill until serving time.
