Mediterranean Hummus Dip

I saw something similar to this recipe on Pinterest.  I put my own spin on it, including making my own hummus.  Wingnut and I had it for lunch yesterday.  It was really delicious and so nutritious too!

Mediterranean Hummus Dip

Two 14 oz cans chickpeas; drained and rinsed
1 small jar sundried tomatoes
2 TBSP Tahini (you can sub 2 tsp sesame oil)
1/2 cup olive oil
juice from one lemon
2 tsp garlic; minced
1small cucumber; peeled and diced
15 Kalmatta olives; chopped
1/2 small red pepper; diced
4 TBSP goat cheese crumbles
20 mint leaves; minced

In a blender or food processor blend together the first six ingredients until completely smooth to make the hummus.  Spread 1 cup of the hummus in the bottom of a shallow serving dish or bowl.  Top hummus with remaining ingredients in layers.  Serve with pita wedges, pita crisps, multigrain crackers, multigrain tortilla chips, or sliced zucchini.
