seven layer mediterranean dip and chips
If you’re in a time crunch to create an appetizer for your next gathering, try this simple seven-layer Mediterranean dip. Not only does the dish taste great, but it is a powerhouse of health benefits. If you weren’t sold already, it’s also vegetarian-friendly.
Let’s break it down for you. Hummus is packed with protein, fiber and antioxidants. Greek yogurt boosts metabolism and contains probiotics to support gut health. Cucumbers and tomatoes are low in calories and high in potassium, which helps to balance the fluid in your diet. Red peppers are full of lycopene and antioxidants, while the olives contain iron and are a good source of healthy fats. Feta cheese is an excellent source of B vitamins and the parsley tops it off with vitamin K to improve bone health.
