This Easy Fresh Mediterranean Salsa Dip is filled with veggies and so delicious! Serve it with pita chips or as a side to grilled chicken or seafood.
It’s been years since I first had this Easy Fresh Mediterranean Salsa Dip at my sister’s house for a family gathering but since then it’s become a real favorite. We love any sort of Greek or Mediterranean flavored foods like Greek tacos or this Greek Lentil and Orzo Salad. The unique herb and spice blend and feta cheese gives this salsa a tasty twist on your traditional salsa.
What I also love about this dip is how FRESH it is. It’s filled with vegetables which is perfect for using up what might already be growing in your garden or what’s in season. But the bonus is people of all ages seem to gobble up this salsa dip and when I serve it with whole wheat pita chips I consider that a super win on a healthier appetizer or snack that’s also good for you!
I normally like to buy my spices at Penzey’s and purchase the Greek seasoning blend already made up but you can also find Greek seasoning blend in the spice aisle of your grocery store. We like to use it on grilled fish or chicken too. As a matter of fact, you can serve this kind of like a salad on the side and maybe pair it with my Wild Rice Pilaf for a healthy dinner that’s also easy enough to have on the dinner table in about a half an hour.
This Easy Fresh Mediterranean Salsa Dip is super popular when I make it for get togethers with family and friends. It makes A LOT so it’s perfect for parties too.
As if there’s not already enough to love about this dip, the best part is it’s make ahead too! As a matter of fact, it’s actually better if you make it ahead so that the flavors have time to blend. I hope you give it a try!
