This delicious dip is filled with the flavors of the Mediterranean and guaranteed to be a hit at your next holiday party!
With the holiday season in full swing and many parties on the way, I've been in my kitchen a lot lately experimenting with new recipes. You can imagine my excitement when I was asked to participate in the Mezzetta Memories campaign and share my family traditions with you, as well as create a new recipe!
For the last several years my family has been gathering on Christmas Eve after mass for food, drinks, and games. Instead of preparing a heavy meal, we fill the table with our favorite appetizers! Wings, cocktail weenies, veggies and dip, cocktail shrimp and, of course, lots of different dips are on the menu.
My family loves seafood dips, and of course the traditional vegetable dips, but I wanted to do something a little different this year. Something with unique flavors and a little kick. So I bought a few of my favorite Mezzetta products and decided to make a layered Greek dip. I'm a huge fan of hummus and Greek yogurt, and the Mezzetta products I chose for this dip go perfectly!
This dip is very simple to make and can be put together in no time, making it the perfect appetizer for your holiday parties. Serve it with your favorite pita chips or even pita bread and I guarantee your family and friends will be asking for more!
