This Greek Dip is creamy, refreshing, and (here’s one you don’t hear very often this time of year) healthy!
I don’t know about y’all, but I’m in full-on holiday recovery mode. The past two weeks have been a frenzied marathon of cleaning, wrapping, decorating, fixing, breaking, fixing again, baking, partying, eating, doing dishes, unwrapping, hugging, and eating again. It’s been fantastic.
But now…for lack of a better term…I’m pooped. Yesterday I didn’t get out of my PJs. The Mr. and I spent the day grazing on leftovers, watching Parenthood (yes, I’ve finally given in to the hype), and watching the snow pile up outside our back window. It was pure, utter, laziness. And I relished every moment of it.
I know we still have another weekend of holiday festivities and celebrations ahead of us, but I can’t bring myself to turn on the oven just yet. And if I see one more platter of holiday cookies, I think my skinny jeans will cry.
But quick, no-bake, fresh and festive greek dip?
I think I can muster up the strength for that.
This dip is creamy, refreshing, and (here’s one you don’t hear very often this time of year) healthy!
It could easily make it’s home on a New Year’s Eve party table, but also makes for a great post-holiday detox snack. The recipe is forgiving, so add your own favorite veggies to the mix to make it your own. This takes less than 20 minutes to whip up so you can sit back, grab some leftover egg nog, and get some rest before the next holiday hits.

Festive Greek Dip
- 12 oz. hummus (my favorite is Garden Fresh Greek Hummus)
- 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
- 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 small cucumber, chopped
- 1/4 cup black olives
- Pita chips, for serving
- Spread hummus across the bottom of a pie plate.
- Layer feta and vegetables on top of the hummus in concentric circles, alternating colors. I did a ring of feta, then cucumber, red pepper, olives, green pepper, and more feta. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and finish with a drizzle of olive oil if desired.
- Serve with pita chips.
