Greek Layered Dip

When we go to a potluck or have an evening in and want a treat, I love to bring a layered dip. You can serve them with so many options, from naan or pita bread to crackers or tortillas.   One dip we enjoy as a bit of a change is this Greek Layered Dip. As with most layered dips, you can add or change some of the toppings to suit your family, but this is our basic recipe. Hope you enjoy!
