I love this Greek 7 Layer Dip for its Mediterranean flavors and light and refreshing taste. It’s also just so easy to whip up in a hurry before a party or BBQ. More of my favorite Greek-inspired recipes are my Crustless Spinach and Feta Pie, Greek Turkey Burgers, and Greek Pasta Salad. And if you want more dip ideas, try my Baked Mexican Layer Dip, Buffalo Chicken Dip and Taco Dip.

Party dips can be so heavy, but this one is loaded with healthy ingredients. My favorite part of this dip is the extra protein in the hummus from the garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas). If you’re serving this Greek layer dip for a large party, you can double the recipe or halve it for a small one.

What is Greek 7 layer dip made of?

Here are the seven layers in this easy Greek dip:

  1. Hummus: The bottom layer is hummus. If you have the time, make the hummus from scratch. If not, use your favorite store-bought hummus. You could also switch it up by using flavored hummus, like red pepper or garlic.
  2. Yogurt: Combine the Greek yogurt, garlic, dill, lemon juice, salt, and ground pepper. You could also make this layer with tzatziki. If you don’t eat dairy or want to keep it vegan, skip the yogurt and add more hummus.
  3. Red Onion: Sub green onions or shallot.
  4. Cucumber: Use a seedless English cucumber since they’re less watery. If you only have regular cucumbers, cut out the seeds.
  5. Tomatoes: Swap Roma tomatoes with cherry or grape tomatoes.
  6. Feta: Feta cheese adds a salty, tangy flavor to the dip.
  7. Kalamata Olives: Finish the dip with sliced kalamatas. If you only have black olives, those will work too.


It doesn’t take long to make this Greek layer dip recipe once your ingredients are prepped. Layer all the ingredients, starting with the hummus and ending with the olives in an 8” x 8” or 7″ x 11″ glass dish. Enjoy the dip with whole wheat pita chips or baked corn chips or carrot and celery sticks for a low-carb option.

Can you make Greek 7 layer dip the night before?

You can prep all the ingredients ahead, but it’s best to layer it just before serving, as the cucumbers tend to get watery if they sit too long.

  1. Think it'd change the taste drastically if I use regular black olives in place of the kalamata? I love kalamata but I'm afraid I won't be able to find them locally (small town).

  2. LOVE THIS! Tasted great, very refreshing on a warm day. I used a store bought hummus and used one that had roasted garlic in it. Everyone in my family loved it. Yummy!

  3. I made this for a wedding shower and it was a huge hit! I served it with some Wheat Thin pita chips and it was awesome. Everyone was really surprised that I made it (I'm one of the youngest in the family so they assume I'm not experienced with cooking). Thanks for making me seem like a fancy chef, Gina!

  4. This looks really yummy. I did recently see something similar but they put it in individual cups. Thought that was a great idea. No double dipping!!

  5. if i'm omitting the yogurt because of dairy issues, is it best to mix the lemon, garlic, dill,etc to the hummus or just omit those too?

    This Greek 7 layer dip is a great addition to any mezze spread! Some of the best ingredients in Greek cooking are in this dish. I like to take the extra step and marinate the olives overnight with oregano, olive oil, and lemon rind to give them additional flavor.

    1. skip the hummus. there's nothing greek about hummus. mix the yogurt with the garlic, minced cucumber, dill together to make the "tzatziki"

    2. You can do skordalia instead of hummus. It is a delicious Greek potato puree that is excellent cold. Most Greek restaurants offer it!

    Okay, this looks delicious. I can't wait to try this. I have a birthday party coming up and I'm hosting. This should be perfect.

  8. Served this over the weekend and it was a hit! I used an English cucumber and but it still became a bit watery.

  9. Made this last night & it was delicious! Did seed the english cucumber & tomato, but it was still a little watery. It didint matter because the flavor was great. My husband put some on his burger & it was amazing!

    1. One trick that helps with that is after chopping your veggies lay them on paper towels. The paper towels will soak up most of the extra moisture from the veggies.

  10. To make it even easier to put together, I would imagine we could use prepared tsatsiki in place of the yogurt mixture.

  11. This looks yummy- why not try scooping out the seeds in the middle of the cucumber to make it last longer- they contain most of the offending water 🙂

  13. Thanks for the recipe ! This is a great alternative to having the standard hummous dip 🙂
