Hummus Salad

There is a local cafe in town that serves a hummus salad that is to die for.  I order it every time I go, and leave so satisfied without being overly full.  They serve it with a side of pretzel chips– just a few–  I love the extra crunch and using them to scoop up any hummus left on the plate.

This cafe is where I first saw hummus used as a salad dressing.  It makes so much sense.  It is creamy, adds a nice bit of plant protein, and is full of flavor.  I would never have thought such a simple dressing would taste so great!

Here is my copycat salad, minus the side of pretzel chips…I ran out that day!

Here is my no recipe recipe for:


Hummus Salad

Put the greens on a plate.  Top with chopped veggies.  Top with a heap of hummus. Top with nuts and dried cranberries.  Enjoy!

    If you do dairy try cottage cheese in place of dressing. So good!
