Yesterday, we discussed layered dips, beginning with the layered Mexican dip, also known as a layered bean dip and seven-layer dip. We also introduced a layered Middle Eastern dip.

In Part 2, we travel beyond Mexico and the Middle East to Greece and India.

If you use a base of nonfat Greek yogurt layered with vegetables, your dip will be low in calories.
