So we walked into Trader Joe’s one evening hungry. To some that is the worst way to enter the store, but it’s a special kind of fun when you have no idea what you want to make for dinner.


After some browsing and debating, one of the helpful employees piped up and asked what we were looking for. We let her know that we were not looking for anything specific and were just ready to eat.


She said well, you should try out Trader Joes Dip. It’s a favorite around here and only requires 3 simple ingredients. We were sold.


In no time we had all the ingredients ready to go and with one quick stir, voila! A homemade dip at its finest. The best part about this easy 3 ingredient Trader Joe’s dip is that you can adjust it to your liking by adding spices, herbs, or different cheese. 


It’s a great way to please any crowd!


Below we will tell you how to make it.


Bruschetta Sauce

The Trader Joe’s bruschetta sauce is the star of the show for this simple dip. It is a mix of Roma tomatoes, olive oil, basil, and garlic.


This bruschetta sauce is so delicious! The tomatoes are juicy and bursting with flavor, the olive oil adds a subtle nuttiness, the garlic gives it a kick of spice and the basil rounds out the flavor. It’s like an Italian party in your mouth that you won’t want to miss.


If you can’t buy the pre-made bruschetta then you can find recipes to make a copycat at home.



Feta Cheese

The feta cheese in the recipe can be changed to your liking. We have used the regular feta as well as the Mediterranean-style feta and both work great. If you like your dip to be a little milder, use less feta.

Steamed Lentils

The Trader Joe’s Steamed Lentils are a great addition to the dip. They add a nutty flavor and hearty texture that makes it a satisfying snack.

The pre-cooked lentils take a big step out of having to do it yourself.


We tend to measure with our hearts.

Feel free to adjust to your liking on any ingredients or quantities.
