    Confession: the minute I finished photographing this Lebanese-inspired seven layer dip I immediately proceeded to lick the plate clean. Can you blame me? Creamy hummus is topped with crisp veggies then drizzled with fruity olive oil, toasted pine nuts and a good pinch of za’atar.

    Fortunately, this addictive appetizer also happens to be a healthy snack packed with protein, fiber and nutrients. Which is good because my boys were eating it by the spoonful come dinnertime. With a pre-dinner snack this healthy, I hardly cared that they weren’t very interested in dinner

    I don’t know what your calendar says today but mine has “National Hummus Day” written in bold. Yes, my friends, there is a holiday in honor of chick peas pureed with tahini, garlic and lemon juice. To say I’m excited would be an understatement.

    And in the meantime, I’m dying to know: what is YOUR favorite hummus flavor? I’m totally digging Olive Tapenade and Spicy Chipotle. What about you??

    No forks required.

    1. Liz, this is a dip after my own heart! When I am too lazy to make my own hummus, I definitely go for Sabra–as close to homemade as you can get. Love that you used Za’atar.
      P.S. I went to school in Grand Rapids, lived and worked there for many years. Nice to meet you via the blog!

    2. So colorful, fresh & easy!
      I brought this to a party yesterday and my friends literally oohed and ahhed and one even took a picture! It was the first appetizer to be devoured.
      Thank you for my new favorite go-to recipe!

    3. I simple adore middle eastern food, and I just ran across your site today and I’m so glad I did! All of your dishes are so flavorful and bright and colorful! I’m happy I found you today! This dip is a perfect snack for the long holiday weekend!

    4. I love this dip. I plan to make it soon for the family. The za’atar is the perfect spice addition to it too! I think the sundries tomato or lemon hummus would be great for this!

    5. This sounds and looks oh so good!! Yummy! I love hummus and my favorite would have to be spinach and artichoke! Crazy good my friends!

      1. I haven’t tried that one and I’m dying to!!! My boys don’t eat the spicy ones so they take me longer to get to but I’m almost done with the Spicy Chipotle container so jalapeno is next!

    6. I’m a dessert blogger and I still want to lick this plate clean! :D Love your Middle Eastern twist on a classic – can’t wait to try it myself!

    7. I love a good hummus dip. This one is so healthy and flavorful. I don’t think I could stop myself from eating the whole bowl! Looks like I’m going to have to call some girlfriends together, so that I can share this lovely dish.
