Layered Greek Dip

Oh my good gracious! This dip is outrageously delish! I served this for some friends that drove in from out of town. I wasn't sure how they would like it because they are what some might call "picky eaters". ;)

It was a risky move but it paid off! The dip got rave reviews and we had to stop ourselves to save a little for James! It is very flavorful and made for a pretty presentation. I made my own pita chips in the oven, but it would be great with tortilla chips, too! I did use store bought hummus in the essence of time, but I will be trying it with homemade hummus, as well.

Since this dip encompassed almost all of my favorite flavors, I will be looking for a reason to make this again. Football season is just around the corner, I suppose!
