Greek Salad

Everything I love about Greek salad is in this dip. Similar in concept to a Seven Layer Mexican Dip, this dip gets a fresher and lighter twist by layering tasty veggies, Greek flavors, and healthy hummus. It comes together in no time, can hang out in the fridge until ready to serve, and when arranged in a pie plate, this beauty of a dip is super-portable for party travel.
