Mediterranean Seven Layer Dip

This is the best gluten free & dairy free dip of all time! You can easily make this completely grainless as well if you omit any crackers and just serve veggies on the side. Regular organic, grass-fed greek yogurt can be subbed in if dairy can be tolerated.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 container of organic hummus- either store bought or you can make your own
  • 1 5.3 oz container of plain dairy free yogurt (I like Kite Hill)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 T chopped dill
  • 1/3 cup chopped cucumber
  • squeeze of 1/2 lemon
  • 1-2 medium chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives
  • dairy free yogurt-I like Kite hill plain or greek plain
  • 1/2-3/4 cup walnut haves
  • a few T chopped parsley

Preparation

  1. Pour walnuts into a large pan and toast over low heat-this is a quick process so keep a watchful eye!  Roughly chop once cooled
  2. Make the tzatziki: combine yogurt, minced garlic, dill, cucumber and lemon juice
  3. Spread hummus all over the bottom of a round or square dish
  4. Layer the tzatziki over the hummus layer, then top with the tomatoes
  5. Add the scallions over the top of that and then the artichoke hearts
  6. Next sprinkle over the chopped olives and then the walnuts.
  7. Garnish with parsley overtop.
  8. Serve with carrots, radishes, endives, peppers and crackers of choice
