Layered Hummus Dip

One of my patients inspired me to make this appetizer.  The comment that convinced me was that she never had any leftovers.  I am convinced that no leftovers is the one of the highest compliments a cook can obtain.

This was awesome!  It combines tons of Mediterranean flavors that are strong and bold.  It is also just another vehicle for me to enjoy hummus.  This is a perfect appetizer and it is gorgeous too,

Layered Hummus Dip

16 oz of your favorite hummus
1/2 English cucumber, diced
4 scallions, sliced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, chopped
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
2 TBS red wine vinegar
2 TBS olive oil
1/2 tsp of Italian Seasoning Blend

On a large platter, spread out the hummus leaving about 1-2 inches along the edge.  Evenly sprinkle the cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, scallions, and mint over the top.  In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, and seasoning.  Pour this evenly over the top of the vegetables.  Serve with blue corn chips, pita chips, or sliced vegetables.  Enjoy!
