This is a beautiful appetizer to serve at Christmas, or Thanksgiving. Serve this with slices of warm pita bread, toasted baguettes, or crackers of your choice.

This was fantastic- so fresh! I made it for the holiday and although my family couldn't eat all of it, we thoroughly enjoyed it with homemade pita chips. I couldn't find the tomatoes, so I subbed in roasted red peppers, chopped. Yummy- and I still can't believe I got my mother to eat hummus!

  3. Spoon another cup of cheese mixture over cucumbers; smooth out. Spoon olives evenly over cheese layer. Spoon remaining cheese mixture over the olives; smooth out. Bang filled mold on counter to pack down the torte.
