For those who typically fear holiday parties for all the fried things and carb-y things and sugary things they can entail – this layer dip’s for you (though we watched it disappear and we’re pretty sure it’s perfect for everyone else, too).
We’re giving the usual Mexican layer dip an appropriate CAVA spin with punchy flavors like sliced kalamatas and quick-chopped mint and a harissa-and-Greek-yogurt combo that can easily stand all on its own. Healthy holiday seeason, we’re ready for ya.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Yield: One 8-inch square or round baking dish
2 containers CAVA Traditional Hummus
1 cup Greek yogurt
4 tablespoons CAVA Harissa
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup diced cucumber (about two cucumbers)
1 1/2 cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup kalamata olives, chopped
roughly chopped fresh parsley and mint
In a medium clear or ceramic baking dish, spread an even layer of hummus. Whisk Greek yogurt and harissa together and carefully spread over the layer of hummus (we like to use an offset baking spatula to help evenly spread the layers without combining them into one another too much). Next, sprinkle artichoke leaves and hearts across the dish, followed by olives, cucumber, bell pepper, and finally, feta cheese. Finish the dish with a sprinkle of parsley and mint. Serve with warm pita chips.
