There are two reasons why I love this recipe so much. First you can make it ahead of time. In fact it is in the recipe to make up to 24 hours in advance. The second reason is you don’t just have to make this a summer dish. You can get cucumbers and tomatoes year round that are worthy of this recipe. It is light and refreshing and you feel you are snacking healthy with fresh veggies! Plum tomatoes seem to be the best all year round as they are not very juicy so the dip does not get soggy or covered in tomato juice.greek dip recipe
 
I made the first layer of cream cheese and hummus 2 days in advance, as I was trying to get things done for the event I was hosting.layered greek dip1
 
Sorry I do not have a finished product picture. I had thought I posted this recipe before so by the time I realized it the dip was almost gone….I guess that is proof it was well recieved. I also used low fat Cream Cheese. And feel free to lighten it up even farther with guilt free pitas by Trader Joe’slayered greek dip
 
I found this recipe in a Better Homes and Garden magazine a few years back and it continues to be a big hit. Best part is you make it a head of time so you can enjoy your guests.greek dip recipe-2
