7 Layer Mediterranean Dip

I made this tasty dip last week for a weekly gathering we have with folks from our church.  Five of us nearly finished off the entire dish, it was that good!  I used my hummus recipe, but feel free to use store-bought as well.  We had pita chips, cucumbers and bell peppers to dip it in.  Just for fun, I topped a lamb burger with the leftovers later in the week, and it was phenomenal.  Just the right thing to go with that burger.

7-Layer Mediterranean Dip
(adapted from Circle B Kitchen)

1 1/2 cups hummus
3/4 cup peeled and diced cucumbers
3/4 cup diced red onions
3/4 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup diced kalamata olives
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup diced roasted red pepper (jarred is fine)

pita chips and/or vegetables, for dipping

In a 9-x-13 inch baking dish (or any other serving dish), spread the hummus in an even layer.  Add layers in the following order:  cucumber, onions, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, and roasted red bell pepper.  Serve with pita chips and/or fresh vegetables.

**I gave measurements here, but when I made the dip, I simply put on as much as looked good.  I used the entire batch of hummus.
