This Mediterranean Layer Hummus Dip is a fresh and healthy appetizer that is the perfect dish to pass at any party!
Last night our church [Our Lady Queen of Martyrs] hosted an Advent by Candlelight event meant to help women focus on Christ during the busy holiday season. Let’s just say I probably should have Googled what Advent by Candlelight was all about before walking into the party. Yes, it felt like a party with 200 women of all ages, talking family, faith, and good food. Each table of women were passing dishes of deliciousness, and I opted to bring this simple Mediterranean layer hummus dip.
Whenever I’m asked to bring an appetizer or dish to pass to a potluck, I typically bring this layered Mediterranean layer hummus dip. My friend Colleen shared her recipe, and I doctored it up a step or two more with a few additional toppings. Not only do the colors in the dish remind me of Christmas, it’s truly one of the easiest recipes you can bring to a holiday party. And what person doesn’t need a little more easy in their life this time of year?!
Just one more quick note about Advent by Candlelight: the message of the evening was exactly what I needed after my emotional October. Father focused his discussion on the Blessed Mother, Mary, and the humility, grace, and love she brings to our lives. The holidays are a little sad for me this year, but I’m reminded that there’s plenty to be thankful for, and plenty GOOD to focus on [Mediterranean layer hummus dip anyone?!].
