In my Reader Recipes series, I am highlighting one F&F reader a month so they can share their favorite recipes with all of you.  This month’s recipe comes from my supervisor Julia, who made this tasty dip for a group lunch at work over the summer.  Julia also built up her plank time during my 31 Day Abs Challenge!  Thank you, Julia, for sharing your reader recipe!

February Reader Recipe of the Month

This is the easiest dip, so that is why I love it!  Being middle eastern myself it just seems like a good choice to combine all these ingredients.  My mother first made it, and then I “borrowed” it from her.

Mediterranean Dip

In an 8×8 or any other casserole dish, just layer the items in the order below!

Julia's Mediterranean Dip - Ingredients

  • Bottom Layer:  Hummus – I use plain, but you could get creative with other flavors
  • Next Layer:  Tabouli – Cedar’s has a good one!
  • Next Layer:  Crumbled feta
  • Top Layer:  Seedless cucumbers cut up in small pieces

Again, this is the easiest dip.  Serve with pita chips, pretzel chips, crackers, carrots… basically anything!  Plus with feta as a layer, I thought it was a great choice for Fitness & Feta!

If anyone is interested in being featured on Reader Recipes, please email me at  I’m open to any recipes (healthy or not), you just need to be willing to write up a little post about it and photograph your food.  Would love to feature you, and you do not need to be a blogger to participate!

Off to Two A Day Tuesday!  I can’t wait for 1) high intensity circuits, and 2) my new playlist.  Which includes NKOTB.  Just sayin!
