My new go-to dip recipe! Quick to throw together and a great hit at parties! You can make this up to 24 hours ahead of time to let the flavors meld together. Serve with pita chips and cucumber slices for a light and refreshing appetizer.
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups prepared roasted red pepper hummus (or plain)
Garnish: diced cucumber, diced tomato, crumbled feta cheese, sliced kalamata olives, sliced green onions
1. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and garlic with hand mixer until smooth and combined.
2. Spread cream cheese mixture into a clear shallow serving dish. Top cream cheese layer with hummus and evenly spread. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
3. Prior to service, garnish with cucumber, tomato, feta, olives, and green onions.
