Easy Mediterranean Layer Dip with JaM Wines
A healthy, tasty, easy Mediterranean layer dip recipe that is a great appetizer or wholesome snack. Loaded with goodies, like hummus, pesto, feta, olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Just don’t forget the easy-to-love, witty and fun JaM Cellars!
This healthy and easy Mediterranean layer dip is a go-to when I’m short on time, but need a flavorful app with lots of color. I first made this recipe when I was in the middle of a move and didn’t have many kitchen tools or ingredients on the ready.
It’s one of those uncomplicated, throw together dips that’s always a huge hit. I’ve actually had multiple friends take out scratch paper to jot down all of the ingredients to recreate! I would call that a success.
It’s pretty great on its own, but paired with JaM Cellars and you’ve got a match made in heaven. JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines – Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. Obsessed – Butter Chardonnay is totally my JaM! It’s rich, bold and luscious. It’s creaminess melts in your mouth like no other Chardonnay I’ve enjoyed. “Everything’s Better with Butter!”
Made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking, the grapes selected are juicy, ripe and bursting with flavor. The easy-to-love Chardonnay is cold fermented to a lush creaminess and aged in a unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked-lemon notes and it has a lovely, long, vanilla finish. Simply put, it melts in your mouth!
While JaM Butter is my fave, Brad especially loves JaM Cabernet. This Cab is all about the fruit (blackberries, black plums, black currant, cassis and more). Harvested at perfect ripeness and made in the tradition of great Californian winemaking, JaM Cab bursts with lush berries on the nose and palate. Aged in a unique blend of new oak, it smoothes the wine and adds a lingering touch of vanilla to the finish.
Not that it’s necessary, but it’s always fun to have a snack to go with your yummy drinks. To whip up this colorful app, I keep things simple by using store bought ingredients instead of making things like hummus and pesto from scratch. I just love awesome halfway homemade recipes that are still super impressive. With all of the colorful layered veggies and the pop of feta it is sure to grab peoples’ attention as a dish to try. It also makes a great healthy snack that you can keep in the fridge and enjoy for a couple of days.
I hope you all love this dip! It’s:
