You’re going to love this 7 layer dip recipe. It’s packed with so much great flavor in every bite that it’s perfect for serving with just about anything. We love the salty-sweet, fresh and rich tastes in every bite. In fact, this is a perfect summer appetizer dip recipe thanks to how light and refreshing it feels.

What’s in 7 Layer Dips?
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, and 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 a “Tuscan” 7 Layer Dip! Serve it up around sunset and pair it with a nice glass of wine and you have yourself a relaxing evening perfect for a quiet night in.
- Softened cream cheese
- Greek yogurt
- Minced garlic
- Greek seasoning
- Plain or Roasted Garlic Hummus
- Crumbled feta cheese
- Kalamata olives
- Roma tomatoes
- Fresh parsley

How to Make Mediterranean 7 Layer Dip
- Combine the softened cream cheese and Greek yogurt in a bowl until soft and spreadable.
- Add in the minced garlic and Greek seasoning.
- Spread the mixture out onto a serving plate and top with hummus. I used plain/traditional hummus flavor but you can use whatever you’d like.
- Top the hummus with your diced cucumbers, diced tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese.
- Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
- Place the dip into the fridge until ready to serve.
Greek seasoning can sometimes be tricky to find in grocery stores if you don’t know where to look or don’t purchase it often. the seasoning aisle is pretty vast and everything looks similar. For reference, McCormick makes a good Greek seasoning blend that can be purchased at most stores.
If you can’t find Greek seasoning you can easily swap it out for Italian seasoning instead. It works in a pinch and while it doesn’t taste the same it still tastes pretty good.
Does the order of the layers matter?
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.
What goes on a Greek dip?
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!
What to serve with 7 layer Greek 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! Can also serve it with sliced cucumbers and romaine lettuce leaves.

Your site load time for me is actually very slow, not sure if it truly is my internet connection or your hosting. Is any person else getting a slow load time or is it just me?
I’m sorry to hear this, but I’m not aware of a problem. I’ll look into it. Thank you!

this sounds really good!
Thanks, this is my favorite dip!
What does 1 tsp of Greek Seasoning mean? What kind ? Please be more specific. Love to make this !
You could use Italian seasoning too!
This is a great dip, Tanya. Love the flavors in it. Like you, I have my snack day/nights, too, with Super Bowl Sunday being the premiere event. Your dip will do very well — if I “remember” to serve it. I can be so forgetful — but I have a tasty time of it after everyone leaves. Thanks for sharing, Tanya.
This is one of those dips that I hope for leftovers, so I can eat it for lunch the next day! Thanks John!
What sort of crackers do you normally serve this with?

This dip is incredible!!!! I made it last night and served it today. The flavors were set and it was amazing. I was asked for the recipe several times! I actually served it with Indian naan bread slices and it was amazing with the 2 flavors complimenting each other. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!!
This was absolutely delicious! We had it for a light dinner and will definitely be making it again and again!

This looks outstanding! I’m going to be making this next weekend to bring to a baby shower. There will be about 10-15 people there, and other snacks, too. Do you think I should double the recipe? Thanks!
Hi Carrie, I think the recipe should be enough for 10-15 people. It really is quite filling. I hope you enjoy!

This sounds amazing!
What is Greek seasoning ? Is it store bought already mixed up like Italian seasoning .?
Tanya Schroeder says
Yes! McCormick makes a good of Greek seasoning blend that can be purchased at most stores, although in a pinch, an Italian blend will do.
This my favorite dip. I’ve made it many times and it’s always a hit. I posted a pic of my finished version on Pinterest. I serve it with pita chips, sliced cucumbers and romaine lettuce leaves.
