Mediterranean Layered Dip

Serves 12-14

Vegetable Mixture

2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1 small English cucumber, peeled and chopped

1 small red or yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

3 cups hummus (commercially prepared or homemade)

2 cups shredded fresh spinach

4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

½ cup thinly-sliced green onions

¼ cup chopped, pitted Kalamata olives

2 tablespoons pistachio nuts

Combine vegetable mixture in a bowl; stir to mix. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes for flavors to marry.

Spread hummus on a large serving platter. Arrange spinach on top, leaving a 1-inch-border of hummus.

Drain excess liquid from vegetable mixture; discard liquid. Spoon vegetable mixture over spinach, leaving a ½ inch border of spinach. Sprinkle feta cheese over vegetable layer.

Top with green onions, Kalamata olives and pistachio nuts. Serve with pita chips.

From: Cooking With Bonnie: Farm to France 2011

Last week I announced I would be hosting a complimentary cooking demonstration at Cooking At Bonnie’s Place. Your response was overwhelming. However, some of you were unable to attend as we quickly filled to capacity. So today I am sharing the recipe for the Mediterranean Layered Dip that I demonstrated. It is easy to make, requires no cooking, is healthy as well as delicious. Make this showy dip and then watch it disappear.

I bet this will be one you will enjoy making and serving to your family and friends.
