Seven Layer Mediterranean Dip With Rosemary Butter Flatbread

“This has many of my favorite appetizers all in one dish. Consists of layers of Wild Mushroom Couscous, Spicy Lemon Hummus, Kalamata Olive Tapenade, marinated artichoke hearts, feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, and parsley. Makes an impressive presentation with all the rich colors. Some individual layers require their own separate preparation in advance of assembling the dip. The flatbread is a perfect complement to this dish.”
