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:
~greens of your choice (make sure to get some dark leaves in there for extra iron and goodness)
~chopped red pepper
Put the greens on a plate. Top with chopped veggies. Top with a heap of hummus. Top with nuts and dried cranberries. Enjoy!
The same cafe serves a hummus sandwich. Click here to learn how to make it!
