Dips in the United States are often high in calories, carbs and fat, but this Mediterranean Dip is super healthy. It’s easy to make too, so let’s get started.

How to Make the Mediterranean Dip

This is a 7 layer dip, so it has tons of delicious flavors. You can eat it was pita, bread or tortilla. Or if you really want to save on calories, dip carrot sticks and cucumbers into the mix.

To make the dip, start with a shallow bowl, and put an 8 ounce container of regular hummus into the bottom. Add 1/2 cup of diced cucumber and 1 whole tomato diced. On top of that, put 1/2 cup of yogurt. Choose Greek yogurt if you can.

Over the Greek yogurt, you will put a mixture of 1/2 tsp paprika and 1/4 tsp salt. Over the spices, add 2 chopped roasted red peppers and 4 chopped artichoke hearts. You should crumble fresh feta on the top and also put on some olives to finish. Choose Kalamata olives as this is what most people use in the Mediterranean. Some parsley can be used as a garnish as well.
