Pinterest Love – Recipe: 5-Layer Greek Dip

Photobucket

To wrap up my Greek week, I wanted to share one more recipe.  It is a Greek Layer Dip, and it is delicious.  You can serve it with your Chicken Gyros or as an after-school snack with some pita chips and/or vegetables for your littles.

Once again, I found this recipe on Pinterest.  It is at this point that I must confess that I am not sure how I made my weekly menus without Pinterest.  Whenever I am reading food blogs or just looking at other Pinterest boards, I simply pin or re-pin something to my various boards – breakfast, pasta, pizza, etc.  Then, when I plan my menu, I sit down with my computer and my big binder of recipes and start planning away.  If it something from Pinterest, I simply note the board so that I can find it on any given day.  I love it.  And, no, Pinterest did not ask for my endorsement.  I really just love how it has helped me to organize the things that I find online without having to print out or bookmark everything.

Okay, back to the recipe.  When I discovered it, I was directed to The Lovely Cupboard.  It was my first trip to Heather’s blog, and it is truly just adorable.  She blogs about organic food and her DIY projects.  Her posts are precious, and I am in love with how she displays her photographs on little chalk boards.  Her 5-Layer Greek Dip is simple and delicious.
