Why You’ll Love Greek Hummus Dip
It’s a super easy, healthy appetizer! Seriously, this dip is so easy to make. And it’s a great healthy option for all kinds of parties and get-togethers.
Awesome flavor. You can really taste all of the ingredients in this delicious layered Greek dip! You get lovely Mediterranean vibes from the chickpea and tahini hummus, briney kalamata olives, and salty feta cheese.
Quick to make. Including chopping and assembly time, it will only take you about 10-15 minutes to make this hummus appetizer recipe.
It’s a party favorite! This dip is always a hit. Like, so good that I’ve seen it go before all of the other apps on a party spread (including sweet treats) on multiple occasions.
- Hummus – I most often use Sabra Classic Hummus, but any plain hummus will work
- Cherry Tomatoes
- English Cucumber – I like to use the mini ones! English cucumber is less “seedy” than a standard cucumber, making it more enjoyable in this recipe.
- Crumbled Feta Cheese – adds a nice salty pop to this dip.
- Pitted Kalamata Olives
- Fresh Parsley – curly leaf or flat leaf will both work

Recipe Variations and Substitutions
- Add red onion: If you love onion, adding in a small layer of minced red onion would be a great addition to this dip.
- Add a layer of plain Greek yogurt or tzatziki: full-fat or low-fat plain Greek yogurt is a nice addition to this dip, adding some tanginess, probiotics, and protein. Tzatziki is a creamy, cucumber yogurt dip that tastes great with this dip as well. If you’re adding one of these to your dip, layer it on top of the hummus.
- Use a different type of tomato. Not into cherry tomatoes? No problem! Grab your favorite tomato, seed it, and dice it into small pieces.
- Replace the tomatoes with roasted red peppers. Roasted red peppers are delicious in this dip! Use them in place of the tomatoes.
- Drizzle with olive oil. This is always a nice touch in Mediterranean dishes.
- Add toasted pine nuts. Toasted pine nuts add a lovely texture to this dip.
Step 1: Cut the veggies and olives and set all ingredients aside.
Step 2: Spread the hummus into an even layer at the bottom of your serving dish.
Step 3: Add the chopped tomatoes and cucumbers on top of the hummus.
Step 4: Add the feta cheese and cut up Kalamata olives over the veggies.
Step 5: Top the dip with fresh parsley.
Step 6: Store in the fridge until ready to serve. Serve with your favorite crackers, pita chips, and/or veggies.
Things to Dip in Hummus
- Pita Chips or Pita Bread
- Fresh Veggies – Bell Peppers, Carrots, Cucumber Slices
- Pretzels or Pretzel Thins
Possible Dietary Restrictions?
This Mediterranean dip recipe is vegetarian and gluten-free as written. It can be modified easily to be vegan and dairy free.
- Make this into a vegan and dairy free dip recipe by leaving off the feta cheese!
- A note for serving to those who are gluten free: make sure you have gluten free items to dip with! Gluten free pita, crackers, or chips as well as fresh veggies. It would also be wise to verify the hummus you’re using is gluten free (most should be).
Leftovers can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for 1-2 days.
Either is perfectly fine! I tend to use store-bought because it’s a convenient time-saver.
This dip can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 1 day.
However, I find this dip tastes best freshly assembled. I would recommend pre-chopping the cucumbers, tomatoes, and kalamata olives up to a day in advance of assembly/serving to save time.
