Sometimes a good game of Beatles roulette is all you really need to put things in perspective.

Just close your eyes, press SHUFFLE on your Beatles Spotify station..and pretty much all of your most existential problems will instantly be solved.


Like when you’re debating whether to buy an expensive-in-an-ungodly-way bathing suit from Anthropologie and then “can’t buy me love” comes on.

Or when you’re in the middle of feeling sorry about the fact that your five year plan no longer involves knowing where you will live in a week, and all of a sudden you’re caught up in a round of “we all live in a yellow submarine”.

So when I was trying to plan for a dinner party a few weeks ago and all of a sudden found myself being serenaded with “you get by with a little help from your friends”?

I took it to heart.


I’m not sure how they knew my friends mostly consist of little shelf-stable boxes of hummus, salsa con queso, and refried black beans…

…but they were right.


Recently, Pacific Foods sent me a collection of some of their boxed goods to help inspire a summer-themed party and I thought they would be the perfect way to de-stress a little get-together I was having with my future in-laws after a long and tiring day of bridesmaid dress shopping. I figured the last thing I would want to do when I got home was slave over a hot stove and the last thing they would want to do was have to wait hours and hours to eat, but with a little planning ahead, a tray of tabbouleh hummus dip, and a bag of pita chips…problem solved.

Also on the menu was a smoky corn frittata, heirloom tomato and ricotta tartines, and a little plum pie you might remember from days of yore.

Basically a celebration of all the best of summer right now. Gotta get it while the getting’s good.

I don’t have so much experience with entertaining large groups in my home (because, STUDIO) but in my very limited encounters, I’ve learned a few key things: (a) don’t try to do it all yourself if you don’t have to and (b) always have something for your guests to nibble on the second they walk in your door.

It makes a world of difference.

This multi-layered Mediterranean tabbouleh hummus dip comes at this from both angles. It utilizes multiple flavors of Pacific Foods’ hummus (I went with classic and roasted garlic, but you can totally throw their roasted red pepper into the mix if you’re into that kind of thing), thereby allowing you to avoid dirtying your food processor twice. And your guests will be so busy hovering around the tray and shoveling it into their mouths that they won’t even realize you had to step away for a moment to get things ready in the kitchen.


Just make sure you set aside a few scoops for yourself. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t/(didn’t) go in for thirds of this == no guarantees that there will still be any left when you get back.

    I am soooo making this. My kind of food. I eat hummus just about everyday and this one looks great. I love that it has mint in it. Never had mint in hummus and can’t wait to try it!

  2. That rule of always having something for guests to nibble on the moment they walk in the door is an important one! I’d love to nibble on this app if I came to a gathering at your house!
    Hope your housing situation is working out, btw….

  3. Joanne, this is a great dip idea!! It is so creative! Love this combo tabbouleh and hummus 😉

  4. This is brilliant!! Love this idea!

  5. Yes, it is definitely key to have food ready when people walk in the door! It always makes things go smoother. And what a fun idea for a different kind of dip:-)

  6. Emma says:

    So weird! I had the idea to make a really similar layered dip just a short while ago but hadn’t got around to executing it.
    Looks awesome. Perfect food for entertaining.

  7. When I have people over, there’s a severe problem with everyone hovering around the kitchen, waiting to immediately inhale any food that comes out of the oven. I love that this is something I can make ahead of time and distract them with in the living room so I have time to pour myself a cocktail 😀

  8. Beth says:

    Delicious! And Beatles Roulette – what a great way to solve all of life’s problems.

  9. This is indeed perfect! I will just eat the whole bowl.

  10. Holy shizzle, this dip looks fantastic! I love tabbouleh and I love hummus and I looooooove them together. This just makes sense.

  11. What a perfect dip! I love hummus and tabbouleh, I’ve just never thought to really put them all in one!

  12. ummm.. yes please! You know i eat hummus everynight- this is awesome. Love how this hummus is in that large container and not the small things i get at the store. this looks great

  13. Whoa, delicious!! I’ve never thought to combine tabbouleh with hummus but I am absolutely loving the idea!! Yum!!!

  14. Great idea ! And we have been waiting for something like this all summer and here it is! Thanks Joanne !!

  15. i had no idea that hummus exists in this form as well. thank you for introducing this.

  16. Kelly says:

    Wow, what an awesome dip! I love hummus and tabbouleh! Combining them together sounds amazing! Yum, I’d love to snack on this entire batch 🙂

  17. OMG I looooove this chunky hummus!! Looks soooo sooo good!

  18. Trisha says:

    What a unique dip idea! I’m having friends over Friday and this will be perfect. Also, the Beatles’ wisdom covers everything, I agree. 🙂

  19. danielle says:

    Love this dip combo – it sounds perfect!

  20. SallyBR says:

    Anthropologie is my downfall. Thank heavens for ebay, where I find quite a bit of their stuff within my price range….

    I like Pacific products, but have not seen this hummus around my neck of the woods. Will keep my eyes open for it…

  21. Big yes to having snacks ready to go when people walk in the door – this looks like a VERY good option for that (though I’d happily spoon feed myself this on any random afternoon)!

    Hope the housing-gods brought you an oven yesterday!

  22. Kinsey says:

    First of all, that dip looks amazing. Give me a pita and a few minutes and the dish will be history. Second, what a fun dinner party! Low stress, simple and great food, and a killer dessert are all you need to make the people you love feel happy and well fed. I’m so impressed!

  23. Julia says:

    Partay at Joannes!! I love this post – PF products are definitely real pals when it comes to party planning. I love your Mediterranean tabbouleh spin on the hummus – looks so fabulous, my dear!

  24. This is so good my stomach is grumbling 🙂

  25. What a healthy dip! Forget making a sit down meal. I could polish this whole thing off and call it a night.

  26. Girl – I lurrve me some hummus – but layering it with tabbouleh just takes it to a whole nother level of scrumptious!!! YUM!

  27. Genius! Hummus + tabouleh is the best mash up ever!

  28. Teffy Perk says:

    Looks so so good!
    I love hummus, and I usually have mine without any topping but only because I didn’t know any better!! This looks absolutely delicious!

    {Teffy’s Perks} X

  29. Oh, I could use up a whole bunch of my tomatoes. This looks so delicious! I love the idea of layering tabbouleh with hummus.

  30. Pam says:

    Perfect timing. I was thinking of making a Greek smorgasbord for dinner tonight and this would be a perfect dish to serve with it.

  31. Jordan says:

    Love this! Like Mexican Layer Dip with a Mediterranean twist… sounds so delicious!

  32. This is an awesome dip..I always love hummus and the add of bulgur makes it even more appealing.

  33. Tina says:

    What an awfully cruel thing for you to post when I am stuck working and hungry! I could demolish this hummus. We don’t have Pacific foods here, that I know of anyway. Looks like a good brand. I will have to check Trader Joes.

  34. Meg says:

    I would be all. about. this.

  35. Eileen says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen shelf-stable hummus before! Verrry interesting. And of course you have to love all the classic Middle Eastern flavors in this dip. NOM.

  36. What an awesome combo! Hummus and tabbouleh. Never made tabbouleh but always wanted to. I’m so trying this. Plus I love me a healthy dip with veggies 🙂

  37. This looks beyond perfect, Joanne!!! I know I would eat it ALL!

  38. Mary Frances says:

    You are a fantastic hostess. Having something to nibble on as you walk in truly does make a world of difference. Especially when tabbouleh and hummus are involved. In a seven layer dip. With pita chips
    Have mercy.
    And I’m going to have to get some Beatles music going … I like the way this post turned out!

  39. Kate says:

    Sometimes tabbouleh can be a little much for me, so I like the idea of pairing it with creamy hummus, which I can never get enough of.

  40. Nice combination of two delicious Mediterranean dishes into one!

  41. Deena Kakaya says:

    This recipe is my husbands idea of a perfect dinner…who doesn’t love the fun element of dipping into fresh and bold flavours? Luckily this is a healthful recipe and so when I show the husband and he asks me to do it, I will x

  42. Monica says:

    This is so creative and looks so delicious, Joanne! I adore hummus and wish I’d had it in my life longer. In fact, I’m having it in wraps tonight. Now you’ve given me a great inventive way to use and enjoy it. : )

  43. Emma says:

    Tabbouleh hummus dip… obviously! Why have we not thought to put the two together before… what a great way to jazz up the old buffet table. *love*!

  44. What a fun Mediterranean dip idea! I’ve never seen Pacific Food’s hummus.

  45. Roz says:

    I love to make tabbouleh several times of year and devour it in one sitting! I’ve never thought of adding it with hummus though; a very good pair!

  46. What a wonderful variation on a couple of dips—-dips that are popular too. Its amazing to me that anyone ever has room for the main dishes of meals, because dips are soooo alluring.

  47. Now why haven’t I ever thought of this? Looks fresh and delicious!

  48. Rivki Locker says:

    What a cool combination of two amazing foods.

  49. daphne says:

    I LOVE garlic and hummus so that’s an excellent flavour boost. With tabbuleh- I’m thinking fresh herbs singing in the mouth!

  50. Sofía says:

    Love those bright colors. It looks so fresh and so good!

  51. Isadora says:

    Oh yum! I love all things hummus and that is such a great idea to make a layered hummus and tabbouleh dip!! All I need in life is a big pan of this and box of crackers and I will be all set!

  52. I love this. I have a daughter that just plain loves hummus, she would love this. I will have to make this for her.

  53. I love both of these dips individually…love them even more combined! What a perfect party dish!

  54. I love tabbouleh! This dip looks so good!

  55. I LOVE the idea of shelf stable hummus! What a fantastic idea – I will have to look out for it here. You have put it to good use in this dish too 🙂

  56. Preeti says:

    Hi Joanne. When I saw this dip I had to make it the same day for our weekend get together. Although, I shd be honest by accepting I made my own hummus for the layer but the whole dish came out beautifully! It was so wonderful and tempting to even look at!!!

    Thanks for the lovely idea and recipe Joanne!

  57. I love your suggestion for always having something for people to nibble on when they walk in the door – I struggle with trying to get all the food ready by the time people arrive, but it’s much more feasible to just have a snack for them while everything is finishing up! Definitely going to have to use this recipe as one of those “nibblers” 🙂

  58. Lori R. says:

    Ditto on the Beatles. After we saw Love in Vegas (twice) it’s constantly on the shuffle rotation. What a great combo for a dip!

  59. Danguole says:

    I already told ya on Instagram but I really, really dig this idea! Two of my favorite things in the world–AND chips. Amen. Coming over immediately.

  60. Oh man, this is such a smart recipe. Get in ma belleeeee!

  61. Susan says:

    This looks delicious! Why have I never thought to do that with hummus???

    Good luck with the move – I know you’re not happy about that right now 🙁

  62. Hotly Spiced says:

    I really miss Anthropology! I saw so many things there that I really wanted to buy but hesitated and now I really regret it. Did you get the over-priced swimsuit? I agree that when entertaining you don’t need to put that pressure on yourself to do everything from scratch. A little shortcut here and there like this hummus maintains sanity xx

  63. grace says:

    tabouleh and hummus are things i nearly always get on a meza platter or as appetizers at middle eastern restaurants, so i think this is a FABULOUS idea!

  64. The addition of tabbouleh makes this even better, and I didn’t think hummus could be improved 😀

  65. This dip is nothing short of FAB, Joanne! Mediterranean food is one of my absolute favs and this definitely has my name written all over it. So cool that Pacific sent you some goodies! They sent me similar stuff and I am LOVING it. 😀 Pinned!

  66. I’ll host a party for you if you promise to make a batch of these! Looks absolutely delicious–love the combination of tabbouleh and hummus!

  67. Johanna GGG says:

    wow oh wow that sounds like such a great way to serve dip so you can eat it with just corn chips or crackers and feel like you get the veg as well as the dip – and am reading your posts from the earlier first so I don’t get spoilers about your apartment (is that weird) – glad you have the beatles to advise you with all the serious stuff going on 🙂

  68. […] took this wonderful recipe from Joanne’s website to the party and it was delicious!  I changed it up a tad by using quinoa instead of the bulgur […]

  69. iscribbler says:

    I just made this for a Doctor Who party today and it was really delicious! I made it gluten free and everyone liked it. Thank you for the wonderful idea of pairing the two together. It’s great to have a dish when you’re vegan at a potluck. 🙂

  73. Renee Davis says:

    Looks just beautiful and so delicious. I eat Paleo so will substitute with my grain free/bean free cauliflower hummus and cauliflower tabouli recipes. May even serve in Xmas tree shaped mold on a tray surrounded with red and green tortilla chips or my grain free pitas! Thanks so much for your inspiration!
