Five-Layer Mezze Dip Recipe

This year, rather than be the 5th guest who brings a heavy dip to the Super Bowl Party, surprise everyone. Instead of a 5 layer Mexican dip, mix it up with this Five-Layer Mezze Dip recipe.

It has the richness you want, from the hummus and red pepper dip, plus some heat, to the cool creamy yogurt and bursts of fresh herbs and pomegranates. It’ll be such a big hit that even if your team doesn’t win, you can at least be proud of your dip.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
