Layered Greek Dip
The classic version of this refreshing appetizer has a layer of seasoned cream cheese on the bottom, then is topped with hummus and veggies. This is a lightened variation, I've replaced the cream cheese with a layer of seasoned plain yogurt, moved to the top of hummus. Still a fabulous appetizer with a combination of winning flavors- it never fails to please!

1-1½ c. plain, red pepper or garlic hummus

1 c. plain Greek yogurt
