What Goes in 7 Layer Dip?
A 7 Layer Dip can be made with almost anything. Most often, you will find it made with Mexican flavors. That dip features refried beans, tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream an taco seasoning. People love this dip, it is flavorful, filling, and makes enough to feed a crowd.
While a Mexican 7 layer dip is wonderful, I like to change things up to suit my own tastes. I’ve made a Tuscan 7 Layer dip made with hummus instead of the traditional refried beans and sun-dried tomatoes instead of Roma tomatoes. Think of it as an “upscale” 7 Layer Dip!

What Order For A 7 Layer Dip?
I personally like to have my creamy layer on the bottom. I think this makes for easy scooping. This recipe starts with softened cream cheese that gets combined with plain Greek yogurt. I like to use Greek yogurt for more protein and to keep things lean, however sour cream or creme fraiche can be used in its place.
I like to layer garlic flavored hummus over my cream layer (love hummus? Check out this Hummus and Baked Goat Cheese Dip!). Feel free to use any hummus flavor you like. I prefer the garlic hummus; I think it adds quite a bit of flavor without taking anything away from the other ingredients.
I top my hummus with chopped cucumbers, black olives, tomatoes, parsley, and crumbled feta. You could add pepperoncini peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, or even marinated artichokes to this dip!
Serve your Mediterranean 7 Layer Dip with hearty crackers or pita wedges, pita chips or bread rounds. This dip is perfect all year and for any occasion!
- 8 oz package softened cream cheese
- 6 oz Greek-style yogurt
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tsp Greek seasoning
- Plain or Roasted Garlic hummus (10oz)
- 4 oz crumbled feta cheese
- 1 cup chopped kalamata olives
- 1 small cucumber diced
- 2 Roma tomatoes diced
- chopped parsley for garnish
In a bowl combine the softened cream cheese and the Greek yogurt until combined and spreadable. Add in the garlic and the seasoning. Spread onto a serving plate. Top with Hummus. I used a traditional flavor, but you could use whatever flavor you like. Top hummus with diced cucumber, diced tomatoes, olives, and feta. Garnish with parsley. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
