1/8
teaspoon garlic powder
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Pita bread wedges or assorted crackers, if desired

Expert Tips

Three-fourths cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives can be substituted for the ripe olives. Look for already-pitted Kalamata olives to save time.

Reserve a little of the hummus for decorating the olive layer with fun dots or swirls. You can put the extra hummus in a squeeze bottle or in a resealable plastic food-storage bag with an 1/8-inch opening cut from one corner.
